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.
Some old buildings in the main street
Locals enjoying a group of Mexican buskers
Old buildings in Cathedral Green
The Gothic Cathedral
Old alms houses
A section of the medieval city walls
The castle gatehouse
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.
