DIRECTIONS – one way system.
From Bedford Square in Tavistock follow the road southeast, passing the Bedford Square car park on your left, until you reach a mini roundabout. Take the first exit onto Dolvin road (A386). At next mini roundabout turn right. After a short distance turn right into Mount Tavy road (B3357). The school exit gate is on your left in 0.3 mi. The school has a one way system in operation, therefore continue, taking the second turning on the left BEFORE the road bends to the right. There is a 30 mph sign on the left of a fairly narrow road which continues uphill and you will find an entrance to the school on your left through metal gates. Park in the second car park on your left. Walk along the road continuing after this car park, turn right and follow the curve of the wall next to a sports playground until you reach the Wortham Hall directly ahead.
Stannary Brass Band has chosen to be a non-contesting band. The band enjoys taking part in local events throughout the year and provides opportunities for young people to learn to play an instrument and perform in public. Instruments are available for anyone of any age who would like to learn to play. Experienced players are always welcome.
Stannary Brass Band’s CD“ A Touch of Brass” costs £5 and can be ordered by calling 01822 854888. Postage can be arranged for an additional £3.
