'Frozen-in-time' art studio access

A studio in Devon used by two renowned local artists for about 50 years is being opened to the public on Saturday.

Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards worked in the cabin at Bucks Mills until 1971.

They locked up expecting to return, but never did. Judith Ackland died soon after, and Mary Edwards never came back.

The cabin has been "frozen in time", said a National Trust spokesman.

Inside are paintbrushes and other equipment left by the artists.
