National Trust property Overbeck’s in Salcombe, Devon, has unveiled a new exhibition and garden trail in partnership with Combat Stress.
A former convalescence home during the First World War, Overbeck’s is working with Combat Stress throughout 2019 to explore how the experiences of First World War soldiers compare to the lives of modern-day servicemen and women.
Royal Navy and Army veterans from Cornwall and Devon, who are being treated by Combat Stress, have helped to design the exhibition and garden trail. They’re also participating in photography and writing workshops to replicate some of the therapeutic activities enjoyed by convalescing soldiers at Overbeck’s during the First World War.
