Dartmouth - D-Day …Behind the Scenes

The idyllic town of Dartmouth, siuated at the mouth of the River Dart, is the ideal stepping off point for a look at some of the less talked about aspects of the D-Day landings.

Join your local guide today for a visit to Slapton Sands, site of one of the most unfortunate episodes to take place in the build up to the D-Day operations. Hear a D-Day expert explain the significance of this remote stretch of beach and visist the Memorial given by the United States to the local inhabitants in gratitude for them evacuating their homes to make way for war wounded. Continue to Torcross to see one of the Sherman tanks brought up from the beach.

Afterwards, enjoy a very personal visit to a private home that, amongst many other memorable moments in its history, played home to a dozen injured soldiers duting the war as a small hospital. The owner will welcome you and treat you to hot tea/coffee and freshly based cakes/sandwiches. Tour the splendid gardens that were laid down some 100 years ago, and hear about the house’s mottled history from the owners themselves. by the Governor of Dartmouth
