Walking Round Exeter's Parks

The Rougemont Gardens (named after Rougemont Castle of the Normans), and Northernhay Park were beautiful ... as you have just seen in the last page, and full of Roman "rubble", but they also have more modern memorials around ... especially the main War Memorial, which is for the city, and has no names on it

A memorial to the founding of the 1st Volunteer Rifle Brigade

Not technically in the gardens, but near the wall is this memorial to the bombing destruction of the city ... as I said yesterday, much of the city remians, unlike Coventry, but many houses were destroyed, and families killed.
