    holiday

    We are off to Newquay Cornwall soon for a couple of days and plan a couple more on the way from the London area probably staying around the Exeter area. The question is is there any where worth looking at either on the way or there? Typical ranges with walks on, small museums. Thanks

    Hi 2pounder,
    Dartmoor is well worth a visit, the army has used over 365 acres of land for training for well over a hundred years on there and the scenery is stunning with lots of walks to choose from, you can always check firing times on here.... http://www.dartmoor-ranges.co.uk/firing_notice_1.html


    Okehampton is a good place to start from as access is easy from there, lots of places in Cornwall to go and look at as well.
    Best regards Weasel.

    Hi 2pounder,
    Here is a link to some of the museums down Southwest way, the Cobbaton Combat Collection is well worth a visit as is the Regimental Museum Cornwall.

    Another good museum is the Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at War Museum.

    Best wishes,
    Mike.
