A bit of crafting on this blind..but no blog on which to report her day's work!
But the nautical flavour is with you constantly as you not only browse the museum but also browse Topsham itself.
I love to see wall art .This mural shows salmon fishing in the Exe estuary.Salmon fishing was once a thriving industry on the River Exe.
And of course, you can't escape the Dutch influence.
Along The Strand are the beautiful "Dutch" houses, with their delightful courtyards. The houses were built in approx 1700 by Topsham merchants. They were constructed from Dutch brick, brought back as ballast, and obviously with Dutch architecture in mind . Holland was then the largest customer for Devonshire serges, and these were the greatest days of the port.
Wherever you go in Topsham, you can't avoid the strong sense of past life as it is everywhere..in the streets, in the alleys and along the water front.
Finally... I have to show you my favourite residences!
And that's Topsham..or snippets of it!! One of my favourite Saturday trips, of which I never tire.
