Sharpham's links to the River Dart

This year's Discovering Sharpham Heritage Day will focus on the links between Sharpham and the beautiful River Dart, on which we sit.

We will be discussing the connection between the landscape and the water, and how the River Dart has shaped the history of Sharpham.

The day includes a tour of the house and gardens, talks and a chance to sample Sharpham's cheese over a delicious lunch.

The day is Heritage Lottery Fund supported.


The day runs from 10am until 4pm.
