Join us for the opening night of The Quantock Experience at Halsway Manor. Celebrating 60 years of the Quantock Hills AONB Service, Professor Peter Haggett begins the evening with a fascinating and illuminating talk.
Relax and enjoy local beer & cider tasting, and live music in the bar afterwards.
Peter Haggett, Emeritus Professor at Bristol University, has held geographical research and teaching posts at universities around the world for sixty years. Born, bred and living in Somerset for most of his life, Haggett recently published (‘a labour of love’) “The Quantocks: Biography of an English Region”.
The Quantock Hills were England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, being designated in 1956. Now celebrating 60 Years, The Quantock Experience is a week of all things Quantocks, organised in partnership by Halsway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, South West Heritage Trust and the Quantock Hills AONB Service, and supported by Friends of Quantock. In a week combining indoor and outdoor activities, talks, walks and experiences, discover and enjoy the landscapes, wildlife, history, geology, archaeology, folklore and crafts of this unique area.
