A sunny day at Welcombe saw National Trust Rangers and volunteers building a pirate ship on the beach with local sculptor Tom Hyde. It was a glorious day and we had lots of help from children and adults alike to create a brilliant pirate ship made of drift wood collected from beaches along the Torridge coast.
Drills, hammers and sun cream were abundant at the event which was part of Welcombe Open Studios annual event which gives the public the opportunity to enjoy artist studios around the area. More information on Open Studios can be found at https://welcombearts.wordpress.com/
Yo-ho yo-ho a pirates life for me!
