James - totally fascinated
Exeter has other historical heritage ... namely in 2 places on these set of photos.

The first is the Cathedral Square.  The buildings around the Cathedral are still used by clergy, and the Cathedral school - and show some lovely fifteenth - sixteenth century history.

I fiound it fascinating to see the drain down the centre of the cobbled street.

Slightly on the squeue is Jiffy's fault - it's not always easy to focus when he is pulling to see what he can sniff (That's my story and I am sticking to it!!)

Another are of heritage that Exeter has is Georgian.  This is one of the main streets from that time, and are now mainly solicitors, accountants, etc.

I love Tudor architecture and bet that some of those Georgian houses are Georgian facades with Tudor buildings behind

It is so lovely to see a city where there are so many styles of architecture - I too like to look at Tudor, but would love a Georgian house - there might even be enough space for my junk!!

Love the door too! Looks very Spring like with those crocuses.

That door is stunning - I should imagine the frost and rain have washed those poor crocuses away!
