Following last Sunday’s Sawyer Sunday post featuring our educational little visit to the RAMM, we ventured into Exeter’s famous medieval Underground Passages for another unforgettable experience minus any centuries-old mummies but full of subterranean excitement and bones…yes bones!
Called passages and not tunnels as they were not tunnelled into but actually dug as ditches on the ground and then built over, this historic network brought water to the city of Exeter. At one point they filled the network with wine to welcome King Edward I.
Exeter is a delightful city in spite of the multi weather we experienced one one single spring day: hailstones, freezing temperatures, windchill, rain, lovely sunshine, clear blue skies. As to be expected from Devon…
Last but not least, the big bonus for the kids was seeing the grandad after a long time.
