The Ilsington Local History group meets regularly throughout the late-autumn and winter months, initially on alternate Monday afternoons in Ilsington Village Hall Meeting Room. During the Summer months we hold occasional field visits – the image above was taken during a recent visit to Westabrook Farm, an ancient Devon longhouse, formerly part of Bagtor Manor.
