The group enjoyed a talk from Clyst Hydon speaker.
The members of Honiton Probus Club at their meeting last week greatly enjoyed an illustrated talk by Tom Coleman from Clyst Hydon.
Tom’s subject was “St Kilda - Islands at the edge of the World” a place he spent 2 weeks at some 10 years ago.
St Kilda is an isolated archipelago 40 miles west-northwest of North Uist in the North Atlantic Ocean.
St Kilda may have been permanently inhabited for at least two millennia but the entire remaining population was evacuated in 1930.
Currently, the only year-round residents are defence personnel; a variety of conservation workers, volunteers and scientists spend time there in the
It is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and became one of Scotland’s five World Heritage Sites in 1986.
The Honiton Probus Club now meets at the Honiton Inn, Awliscombe, on the last Thursday of the month.
