Devon Centre, Newton Abbot


The Passmore Edwards Centre is a Grade II Listed building in the centre of Newton Abbot, built in 1904. The Centre opened in June 2012 following extensive renovation and extension that blended the old with the new. The interior is light, bright and flexible so that it can be used for many different activities.
