Dunkeswell Wartime Buildings Appeal.

This is an update on our appeal to buy the Administration buildings our museum was sadly not able to raise the funds to buy the Administration buildings. This is an email that was sent to our museum last week





I need to inform you that the Burrough family have sold the Operations Centre and adjoining land.  The buyers, Fiona Webb and Garry Wright, are very well informed about the historical importance of the Centre and on conservation matters in general.    Their plan, which has already been discussed by East Devon District Council, is to sympathetically restore the Operations Centre whilst transforming it into a residential home.

 I hope you give Fiona and Garry your full support and I am certain that a constructive dialogue with them would be mutually beneficial.  I am copying this email to them so they have your email addresses and I am sure they will be in touch once they have got their project on its way.

 Regards

 Bob Burrough
