The Valiant Soldier opening just for Buckfastleigh locals
BUCKFASTLEIGH'S local heritage attraction is marking the end of the season with a one-off day for people living in the area.
The Valiant Soldier will host a Local Residents' Day, on October 27, before it closes for the winter.
Entry will be just £1, with children going free. Residents should take a utility bill or a letter with their postcode on to prove residency.
The inn, known as the pub where time was never called, is a preserved public house from the 1950s and 60s which volunteers opened as a tourist attraction in 2000.

Sandra Coleman, manager of the Valiant Soldier project, said: "The season has been hard work because of the weather and the economy, but the good news is that we have had more local people in to see us.
"Our new archive room has been busy - we get family history requests from people every week, from all around the world. We have had many artefacts donated by people, as well as papers and photographs for the town museum."
At the event, there will also be extra displays to see.
Cricketers in Buckfastleigh are celebrating with a 150th anniversary of playing the sport in the town, with an exhibition that will include cricket bats, memorabilia and photographs.
Members of the Buckfastleigh Kings Cricket Club will be present on the day.
Club captain, Richard Jones, said: "We are very proud - 150 years is a very good innings for any cricket club. We are looking for new recruits to join us for next season."
The Local Residents' Day takes place from 10.30am to 4.30pm
