Marvellous Marble, Devonshire Marble

Date: 8 February 2022

Torquay Museum Society Lecture
By Colin Vosper
10.45am - 12 Noon

This lively and well-illustrated talk is a reminder of a onetime vibrant Devonshire Marble industry. The talk includes the venues of some of the best examples, locally and nationwide, of the use of the marble and the superb skills of the local quarrymen and craftsmen. Surprisingly, it’s a craft that is still alive in South Devon today as will be revealed.

Lectures are free of charge to Torquay Museum Society Members. But the general public are also welcome to attend - £5 per ticket, payable on the door.
