The Miss Varwells performance

23 March 2017  19:30 - 21:00
Performances on 23rd, 24th and 25th March. In 1909 two unmarried sisters, Emmie and Michael Varwell, arrived to set up home in Throwleigh where they were to spend the rest of their lives. In 1938 one of them, Emmie, wrote a book, ‘Throwleigh, The Story of a Dartmoor Village.’ In it she describes her love for both the landscape and the history of the area, but especially for the village people that she had known and the stories that they had told her, both of the recent past and of long-ago. We meet key ‘characters,’ such as the influential Rector and the ‘jack of all trades’ blacksmith; the last of the Devon wrestlers and an old lady whose family’s memories stretch back as far as the English Civil War. Along with Emmie Varwell, we enjoy the village celebrations, the stories that are told, the songs that are sung and we share her sadness as an older generation departs. In March 2017, Emmie and Michael Varwell will return to Throwleigh. For just three evenings they will tell us their stories of Throwleigh; the old songs will be sung once more and, via pictures from the Throwleigh Archive, we will see the village that Emmie Varwell knew, meet the characters that filled her world and re-create the place that she so loved. Frequently moving, often hilarious and always fascinating, The Miss Varwells Throwleigh will be a unique village event not to be missed.

The work carried out so far has revealed some fascinating information about the development of this building from its original two rooms to the building we see today. All tours will begin at 10:30 and last approximately 1 ½ hours. Please be aware that HU is a work in progress so is presented in an unfinished state and that visitors need to take care when on site.

Visit a Dartmoor Longhouse

22 April 2017  10:30 - 12:00
A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott (HU) is rare and of national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. DNPA is pleased to be able to offer a limited number of tours of its grade 1 listed medieval longhouse which has been closed to the public while it undergoes extensive renovations. The work carried out so far has revealed some fascinating information about the development of this building from its original two rooms to the building we see today. All tours will begin at 10:30 and last approximately 1 ½ hours. Please be aware that HU is a work in progress so is presented in an unfinished state and that visitors need to take care when on site. The house has uneven floors, low beams and stairs.
Location  Higher Uppacott, nr Poundsgate  Booking: Yes  Charge: Adults £5.00, children 14 & under free (tours more suited to children 8+)
