Following the success of our trip earlier in the year, we once again visit the Devil's Porridge Museum in Annan. It tells the story of how this once quiet area flourished into a hub of wartime munitions activity.
The unique name was inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who, while visiting the factory as a war correspondent, witnessed the munitions girls kneading the guncotton explosive mixture 'into a sort of Devil's Porridge'. As part of the activities to mark the Centenary of Armistice Day you will also have the rare opportunity to take a guided visit to a former factory site (3.5hr stay).
We then head to the Houghton Hall Garden Centre in Carlisle for an extended stop (1.5hr stay).
Entry included. Leave for home 4.30pm.
