At the historic village of Porlock, in the Exmoor National Park, UK
With wonderful views to the west over the village, the garden has many plants used in medieval times for culinary and medicinal purposes. There are old english roses and the apple trees are the scene of wassailing in January each year.
Dovery Manor Museum is a not-for-profit charitable organisation whose aim is to provide a fantastic insight to the history of this lovely Exmoor village and nearby communities.The museum is run by a group of enthusiastic volunteers.
Donations are very welcome towards the ongoing costs of the museum. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider using the Gift Aid scheme to make your gift even more valuable.
The 2017 exhibition is named, 'Seas of Change'. In conjunction with The Boat Shed Museum, at Porlock Weir, we carry forward the history of Porlock Weir from 1914 until 1950. The title, Seas of Change, reflects the enormous, and far reaching, social and technological changes of the period.
