Historical Exeter

Well I have had my knee x-rayed today, and the mammogram yesterday - so I shall probably glow in the dark (saves money fro electricity!)

When I went for the mammothingy I went to the edge of the city ... and while there took the oppertunity for a bit of a wander and an explore.

Exeter is a modern city, we have just had John Lewis build a new shop in the centre ... yet, we still have sections of Roman Wall  and some Medieval buildings ....
