A fabulous Exeter site!

This is the oldest surviving medieval bridge in England. It is where I rested, briefly, on Saturday, during a grand, historical tour of Exeter.

Just a stone's throw from the centre of Exeter!

My son planned this tour..it was brilliant. He should work for the Exeter tourist board!
Here he is with one interested tourist!
More at a later date!!

Sal, there's a good chance I will be home next Spring (end of April) so I may need a guide for Exeter! There will be a group of perhaps seven of us - I may need to talk to your son!!!!

Thi bridge is lovely - don't ever remember seeing it before.

Hi Sal i havent visited for ages. So had lots of lovely yummy posts to catch up on - your garden is lovely - we have so many plans for ours next year but the house is the priority this year - we sat there the other night in the sun and said we hadnt done too bad out there considering we have only been there 6 months! We are eating our broad beans tonight! We dont have a huge garden but we are making a proper veg area ready for getting in winter veg.

Don't you wish time-travel had been invented? Just to see that bridge when it was over a river!
