Melvin Teale comments : This tour was originally booked to go to Barnstaple as well as Meldon Quarry, but due to extremely late running, the run to Barnstaple was cancelled. As a result the tour was re-run on 16th September, covering Heathfield & Exmouth as well as Barnstaple. Passengers from this tour being given a discount. Nevertheless, it was a good tour as far as it went.
