Synopsis

The county town of Devonshire, and at times ranked behind only London and Winchester in terms of national importance, Exeter has more than 2,000 years of history to explore. From the Romans to the Met Office, via the Civil War and the Baedeker raid of 1942, this compelling story is brought to life here with a fascinating combination of archive material, new colour photographs and informative captions. Proud of its ancient Guildhall, its medieval cathedral, its elegant Georgian terraces and its assertive Victorian museum, the city sits comfortably in the surrounding Devon countryside, while the River Exe, once vital to the cloth trade that formed the basis of the city's wealth in the Middle Ages, now provides all manner of outdoor activities. Such a city can tell tales of a vindictive countess, fabulously wealthy bankers, an outbreak of cholera, a moving house...
