Pottering around Exeter

Exeter’s not a particularly photogenic city. What the Luftwaffe didn’t flatten during the War, the town planners demolished in the 50s and 60s and replaced with some truly horrible modern monstrosities. But there was enough to look at to keep me interested for a weekend.

Exeter Quays

The river-side docks have clearly had a lot of investment over the last few years. The warehouses and boat-houses have been re-purposed as craft shops and eateries, and it’s quite a pleasant place to wander around and grab a light lunch looking out over the water. Needless to say, I did NOT avail myself of the opportunity to hire a pedalo or kayak!

    So hitler gave the town planners a great opportunity which they clearly failed to take and screwed everything up except for their own little empires which i’m sure prospered.
