Visitors to Fairlynch will be admitted free of charge all day on Friday 11 September as part of the Heritage Open Day programme organized by English Heritage.
Inside there are collections of geological specimens, including radioactive nodules discovered by Budleigh archaeologist George Carter http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2009/07/george-carter-and-archaeology-of-east.html There is also a lace room as well as a costume room, and an exhibition of toys and items for children, souvenir china and model ships. And the shelves of folders in the Local History section testify to the impressive amount of work carried out by Fairlynch volunteers to catalogue all the photographs, documents and artifacts which illustrate the fascinating history of Budleigh Salterton and the surrounding villages.
Outside the Fairlynch building itself there are some curious and interesting features in the surrounding gardens, like this chair.
