Over fifty people attended Salcombe History Society's last general meeting, held on 21st June 2017 at Salcombe Rugby Club. Members were treated to an interesting talk by author Robert Hesketh on smuggling in the Devon, during which he revealed that most inhabitants of coastal communities were involved in some way and here in the South Hams, the tower of Thurlestone Church was used to store smuggled spirits.
