Friday 2nd August


It’s all about Exeter today and the cathedral is the recognised highlight, massive, gothic and with 1000 years of history in it. Exeter is also about the water and its bustling quayside.

A walk in this part of the city is named after Tommy Cooper who grew up here.

Post Run
Moretonhampstead Motor Museum is an eccentric, eclectic gem (closed Fridays).
Time permitting I’d like to take an alpaca for a walk at Powderham Castle.
