Event Details


By the beginning of the 18th century, Exeter was an economically powerful city, based on a prosperous wool and cloth industry. Visiting in the early 18th century, Daniel Defoe wrote that it was ‘large, rich, beautiful, prosperous’ and many fine buildings attesting to this were constructed during the 18th and early 19th centuries, but bomb damage during the Second World War has that much of this has been lost. Setting out from the Cathedral Green, this two-hour walk will take in the terraces and pleasure gardens of Southernhay, the remains of Blitz-damaged Dix’s Field and the Georgian set-piece of Colleton Crescent high above the River Exe and its quay to recreate Georgian Exeter based on those buildings still standing and what has been lost.

Rosemary Yallop leads.
