Calais Child Migrants Sent To Torrington

Torrington church history.


“This Church was blowen up with powder Febr ye 16th Anno 1645 and rebuilt Ao 1651”.

This happened during the Battle of Torrington, which was the biggest battle ever fought in Devon, when Fairfax and Cromwell defeated the Royalist army under Lord Hopton, thereby ultimately gaining command of the South West. The Royalists who held the town had stored 80 barrels of gunpowder in the church. The Roundheads as they captured new ground looked for a suitable place for their prisoners and shut them up in the church. Somehow the explosion resulted, with great loss of life. In the churchyard a cobbled mound covers a mass grave.

Experts differ over how much of the church was destroyed in 1645. Experience of blitzed churches inclines one to think that reports of the damage were exaggerated. The PILLARS at the east end of the nave must be the work of the 14th century, while the solid square pillars farther west are presumably the work of 1651. The blast came from the south transept (the old tower) in a north-westerly direction.

Torrington is a right weird place. When I lived in that area it was said you could tell the Torrington school bus when the kids got off in Bideford because they were all red-eyed. Stoned. Before school.

Without going into too much detail Torrington teenagers have been known to show an active interest in creating explosive devices. There's still a mortar rusting away in the woods somewhere after its effectiveness prompted a quick and thorough disposal. The hand grenade at the party incident will be remembered by those who were there. "What's this?" He asked, before pulling the pin. "GRENADE!" Shouted the creator while throwing everyone out of the room before slamming the door just before the explosion. Unhappy parents.

That's what I know about Torrington.

And they're sending a load of Calais kids there?

This must be a joke.




The North Devon Journal has contacted Torridge and North Devon district councils in an effort to confirm the BBC report.

The Home Office has not confirmed the BBC report, which said 50 to 70 youngsters – mostly teenagers – were on their way to a hostel near Great Torrington.

They're pyromaniacs in Torrington! This is insane! Torrington is not a place you send child war refugees to. Unless you want to drive them insane.

p.s. No offence meant to the good people of Torrington. But really. All those with local knowledge know the reputation.

I rest my case.

Almost rest my case. How about this, from the horses mouth.

Great Torrington has always been a "different" town.

It's no mistake they've chosen Torrington. This will be a remarkable failure in care for war refugees. It has to be deliberate. No chance could lead to this. The history and 'vibes' of the town are why it was chosen.



The Battle of Torrington marked the end of Royalist resistance in the Westcountry and led to the eventual defeat and execution of King Charles I.

If these "migrants" misbehave they will experience some Devonian sub-judice justice. Its a traditional brand that involves trees ropes and unmarked moorland final resting places.

You can bet no migrants will ever be sent to areas where politicians (spits) reside.

There will be some corner of a Devon field that is forever fertilised, should serious infractions of Law occur.

This is another aspect. Devon isn't London.

That's is so right. It is the Lord's own county and those that were born and live there are grateful on a daily basis.

Excuse me for asking, but...........the article you referenced indicated that they (the migrant children) would only be sent there for a few days. They say in the article that they're using that town as a processing center, not as the final destination, no?

Yes, it looks like it. Two hours in Torrington would be enough to send you into a timeslip. It's an odd place. No offence meant to the good people who live there, but they say it themselves.

If they are to be then moved to other destinations around the country why first take them to such an out of the way corner? Adding so many miles to their journeys doesn't get them settled sooner.

It's an odd choice, not far from where GCHQ Bude run their satanic child abuse parties.

Devon County Council says 23 children from the "Jungle" camp have arrived at the temporary centre near Great Torrington.
The youngsters - who are all believed to be male and under the age of 18 - arrived by bus at about 03:00 BST.
The migrants, originally from Afghanistan, Sudan and Syria, could stay in Devon for up to six weeks.
It's believed they will receive medical checks before they are reunited with family members or moved to other parts of the country.
www.bbc.co.uk...

Arrived there at 3 in the morning after travelling from Croydon. All male. Will be there for up to six weeks.

It's as if it was designed to be disruptive. I'm sure there's a suitable posh enclave in Epsom that could have taken them at a reasonable time of day. Rest and recuperation is what they need, not late night journeys to strange destinations.

It does seem strange.

Maybe there's a campus of health care facilities to provide screenings and treatments? They typically matriculate refugees into the US at facilities near health care centers for that very purpose. They do health care screenings, bring the kids up to speed on vaccinations, evaluate for nutritional deficits, and do psychological and educational level evaluations.

Just a thought.

Those kids will probably be Is fighters in their 30s so don't worry too much.

If they fall in with the Torrington youth they'll be gibbering acid-casualties in tie-dyed baggy trousers.





This is weird even by North Devon standards.
