Welcome

We are a friendly Club for alumni, graduates and retired staff of Exeter University and their families. As well as those who have studied or worked on the Streatham Campus, this also includes St Luke’s and the Penryn and Truro Campuses, the former Camborne School of Mines, the Medical School and the (pre 1955) University College of the South West of England.

Our Branch of Exeter University Club is run entirely by volunteers and events are as varied as our individual interests! Programmes comprise a range of social and cultural activities, as well as informative talks and days out.

Details of forthcoming Exeter Branch activities are given in the events calendar.

To find out about membership and our modest joining fee, please contact the Secretary, Peter Wingfield-Digby: 

 

Starting in January 2019, our meetings and talks are being held at the Cowick Barton in Exeter.  The Cowick Barton is at 121 Cowick Lane, Exeter EX2 9HF    Tel. 01392 491117   Website: www.thecowickbarton.co.uk

There is a large car park at the pub, and the ‘A’ bus stops right by the pub.

Many of our members will recall that we used to hold our meetings at Cowick Barton until about five years ago. Since the time we left, there has been a major refurbishment of the pub, and the décor, quality of food and service are now much improved.

The site of the pub has a very long history, dating back to the 12th century, when it formed part of Cowick Priory. The Priory itself was demolished at the Reformation. The present house was constructed around that time, perhaps using some of the stone from the demolished priory.

Our old meeting room has now been converted into an attractive restaurant (where we hold our Christmas lunches). Our meetings will normally be held in that room, but if our numbers are low we may be moved to the Monks’ Room, with its attractive Elizabethan fireplace.

The Committee looks forward to seeing you and your friends at its meetings at the Cowick Barton. Please take careful note of the dates of all meetings, lunches, and visits, and, if you would like to attend any of them, contact the organiser by the deadline date shown in the programme.
