Water in the City

The book provides a richly illustrated history of Exeter's famous underground passages—and of the city's sophisticated system of public water supply during the medieval and early modern periods.  The aqueduct tunnels are a vivid testament to the skill of the medieval craftsmen who built them, and cannot be paralleled anywhere else in Britain.

The West Country As A Literary Invention


Is the 'West Country' on the map or in the mind? Is it the south-west peninsula of Britain or a semi-mythical country offering a home for those in pursuit of the romance of wrecking, smuggling and a rural Golden Age? This book investigates these questions in the context of the relationship between place and writing.
