Simonsbath Festival talk by Bette Baldwin, Friends of Hoar Oak Cottage

Wednesday 13th June 2018 07:30 pm

Location: St Luke's Church, Simonsbath
Duration: N/A
Description: Hoar Oak Cottage: A forgotten piece of Exmoor sheep farming history - An illustrated talk - ‘The simple life, the humble life, is as wonderful, in its way, as any grand life of achievement and public recognition.’ Alexander McCall Smith - Hoar Oak Cottage has been home to shepherds since the 1700s and has been lived in by at least 15 families and the birthplace to more than 20 children. It remained a sheep farm until the 1960s, when the last shepherd family left, and by 2000 the cottage was deserted and derelict. Four of the shepherd families – from the 1870s to 1900 - were Scottish migrants employed by Frederic Knight to introduce Black Faced and Cheviot sheep to Exmoor. Bette Baldwin is descended from one of those shepherd families - James and Sarah Johnstone who left Lanarkshire to live and work at Hoar Oak Cottage in a remote north-western corner of Exmoor on the Somerset-Devon border. Bette Baldwin and another descendent Will Bowden decided to set up the Friends of Hoar Oak Cottage to try and preserve the fabric of the buildings as well as researching and sharing the history of the place and people who lived there. Bette’s talk tells the story of the people, the place and what life was like at Hoar Oak Cottage. Refreshments available and a locally-made pasty, costing £4, may be booked in advance for the interval.

Duration: 3 hours
Description: Bulworthy Project Barbecue Café Evenings are a great social event for all the family. No need to book. Admission is free. You just pay for food and drinks as you order. We will source the highest quality local ingredients to cook over Devon's finest charcoal. We will of course have some local cider and ale, white wine from Yearlstone Vinyard and some great organic red as well as a selection of soft drinks. The salad will be picked on the day here at Bulworthy Project. As well as great locally produced meat, there will be vegetarian and gluten free options. The campfire will be going and although we hope for a lovely warm evening, but we do have a marquee so that everyone can stay warm and dry whatever the weather. We're looking forward to getting the barbecues fired up for another evening of great food and great company in the woods. You are welcome to explore the woods whilst you are here and there will be further entertainment that will be organised closer to the date.
