A Day in Exeter

The last day of our holiday in Lyme Regis we decided to drive over to Exeter, a city we’d never visited before. We only had just over half a day in the city so didn’t get to see everything it had to offer, in particular, the quayside, but we had an interesting and enjoyable day.

We particularly exploring the medieval and Georgian underground passages which were designed to bring clean drinking water from natural springs outside the walled city. The water flowed through lead pipes installed in the tunnels which allowed access for maintenance purposes.
