http://www.askdavetaylor.com/3-blog-pics/donesday-book-open.jpgTHE DOOMSDAY BOOK
Facebook is suing a company called Teachbook  , which operates a social networking site for teachers, apparently because it has "book" in its name and "competes" with Facebook. Teachbook is described as "a professional community for teachers". Sounds like a threat to Facebook's existence doesn't it?  Well we know of a book that predates Facebook and tells us all about Devonshire. Yes "The Doomsdaybook! The Domesday Book was commissioned in December 1085 by William the Conqueror, who invaded England in 1066. The first draft was completed in August 1086 and contained records for 13,418 settlements in the English counties south of the rivers Ribble and Tees (the border with Scotland at the time). Read about Devonshire in The Doomsday Book

Cerdic

Where The English Came From

I'm Cerdic. First King of Wessex
Welcome to MY KINGDOM

What we know today as the West Country - Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset - was once covered by a vast sub-Roman kingdom called Dumnonia. The name derives from the Celtic Iron Age & Roman-British tribe of the Dumnonii who lived in the two latter counties and the western part of Somerset. The name is retained today in Devon, the Saxon modern version derived from Defnas (the men of Devon) via the late-Celtic form, Dyfneint. 

We have a multitude of reference pages which were created some time ago and are now under reconstruction. So on here you will find dedicated pages to specialist activities in Wessex & Mercia. These include a list of Agricultural ,Horse Shows etc, The Wessex Hall of Fame, Michelin starred restaurants in Wessex,Seaside Resorts,Theatres in Wessex & the UK, List of Films made in Wessex, Wessex Names, Golf Clubs, Football Clubs, Rugby Clubs, and Racetracks . Campers & Caravanners have their own dedicated section too. I have even got my own page for readers letters and news snippets, mainly from my ancient capital Chard.

Great British Heritage Pass - Buy Online
Travel the South West of England with the Great British Heritage Pass - explore the stunning South Western regions and England heritage properties of Bristol, Bath, Cornwall, Devon, Cirencester, Wiltshire, Christchurch and more.Your tour of South West England begins at Lacock Abbey, a 13th century abbey converted into a house in 1540, with 18th century Gothic alterations. It was also used for the filming of various interior scenes at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.Next head off to Bath to see the Roman Baths and Pump Room, the extensive remains of Roman Baths and Temple Complex, and amongst the finest Roman remains in Europe. Mystical Stonehenge next awaits you, where for over 5,000 years these enigmatic stones have engendered a sense of reverence in the millions who have visited them. Continue heading southwest towards Stourhead, a world-famous garden laid out from 1741-80, where its lakes, temples and rare trees form a landscape of breathtaking beauty throughout the year. Barrington Court Garden in Somerset is a tudor manor house restored in the 1920s, with a garden laid out in a series of ‘rooms.’ Next head to South Devon and see Berry Pomeroy Castle, a romantic late medieval castle located halfway up a wooded hillside, which looks over a deep ravine and stream. Escape to Trebah Garden, a 26-acre early 19th century ravine garden that falls to a private beach on the Helford River. It is a paradise for artists, gardeners, and families. Next head for St. Michael’s Mount, a medieval castle on a tiny island linked to the mainland by a causeway, before continuing to Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. The extensive ruins of this medieval castle cling precariously to the edge of a cliff. Finish your tour of the South West of England with a trip to Lundy Island, which has an historical pirate connection and a puffin habitat.

A LA RONDE

Two cousins, Jane and Mary Parminter, built this 16 sided house in 1796, after they had done the Grand Tour of Europe. The house now contains many of the original contents and collections that the first owners brought back from Europe with them. There is also a shell encrusted gallery that is so fragile that you can only see it via closed circuit television the National Trust have installed

Abbot Pottery

Caroline Smith is a Devon potter whose slip decorated earthenware reflects the West Country landscape. After working for a local pottery she set up this family business with her father. The Moorland design or 'Sheep Pottery' is the result of walking and riding on Dartmoor from an early age and her interest in the natural world. The methods used in production, including hand throwing on the wheel, follow the tradition long established by the old Torquay Potteries

Ashburton Museum

No visit to Ashburton would be complete without a visit to the Town's Museum. Originally started in a private house, it moved to the tower of St Lawrence Chapel and, when it outgrew that, in 1962, to the old blacksmith's shop behind the chapel (part of the old grammar school site). By 1968 it moved again to its present site in the centre of Ashburton (next door to Lloyds Bank) in a building which was once a brush factory.It houses a unique collection, which, in addition to items of local interest, includes a large collection of North American Indian artifacts

Barnstaple Heritage Centre

Barnstaple Heritage Centre is housed in the grade I and II listed "Queen Anne's Walk" building on the riverfront. This beautiful building was once a merchant's walkway (the Great Quay once cut in in front of the collonade). In 1709 the fancy stonework and statue of Queen Anne was added. The building behind the Colonnade, now housing our shop and exhibition, was built in the 1850s and has been used as a baths & wash-house, a masonic lodge and a day-centre. This important building has now been given a new lease of life as Barnstaple Heritage Centre.

Bull Point Lighthouse

Bull Point Lighthouse gives a guide to vessels navigating off the North Devon Coast with a red sector light marking the Rockham Shoal and the Morte Stone off Morte Point.The light was first established in 1879 on the headland near the village of Mortehoe, North Devon, and operated without undue incident for 93 years, but on 18th September, 1972, the Principal Keeper reported ground movement in the area of the engine room and the passage leading to the lighthouse, and that 2" fissures were opening up. In the early hours of Sunday morning, 24th September, 15 metres of the cliff face crashed into the sea and a further 15 metres subsided steeply causing deep fissures to open up inside the boundary wall. Walls cracked and the engine/fog signal station partly collapsed, leaving it in a dangerous condition and putting the fog signal out of action.

Escot Country Park and Gardens

Escot Ltd is a testimony to rural business in the 21st century. Since 1984, John-Michael and his wife Lucy have instigated a dramatic evolution of this traditional East Devon rural estate, sensitively managing a programme of diversification that has been imaginative, bold and highly successful. The extent of change has been dramatic, yet perfectly in tune with both the natural and the human environment. As John-Michael is fully trained in fish farming management, Escot Aquatic Centre was the first new venture. However, as the impact of foot and mouth hit rural businesses, Escot diversified and now includes an array of enterprises, some directly managed by the Kennaways and some independent. These include a pond design and construction business, an award winning pet centre, a restaurant, conference centre, an outdoor event company and holiday accommodationMany attractions in this beautiful Country House & Gardens set i 1200 acresjust outside Exeter. Many flourishing businesses here all at ease with nature.

Finch Foundry

The tiny village of Sticklepath in Devon would once have resounded with the sound of this 19th-century water-powered forge, which produced agricultural and mining hand tools. So bad was the vibration that the pub next door had to fit beading along its shelves to stop the glasses falling off. Opened in 1814, the foundry continued in use until 1960. Restoration work by the Trust means that it is still in working order however, and the three waterwheels that drive the huge tilt hammers and grindstone can still be seen in action.

Flete

The garden at the historic Flete House in South Devon is slowly being restored after decades of neglect. A Victorian walled garden which was left to fall into disrepair for 50 years, is being restored to its former glory. The garden is at Flete Estate - an historic site near Ermington in South Devon.  There has been a Manor at this spot since the time of the Conquest. Then, during the 19th century the magnificent gardens were created.  However, the gardens slipped into disrepair at the outbreak of WW2, and from 1956 to 1998, they were used to grow Christmas trees. And the project even has the support of the Chinese Government.

Fremington quay was important in the 19th and early 20th centuries for import and export of china clay, coal and other minerals all over the world. The thriving railway station fell into decline in the 1960s when the rail link was closed. On the site of the old railway station a replica station has been built, housing a visitor centre, café and restaurant and a signal box that allows observation of the varied wildlife. The site is now an RSPB reserve. Many rare species of birds are to be found here and seals are to be seen at high tide. There are permanent displays of Fremington's past, including the rare Fishley pottery, as well as regularly changing exhibitions.

Hackney Marshes

Hackney Marshes LNR comprises meadows, ponds and streams on the edge of Kingsteignton.The disused Hackney canal bordered the southern end of the Marshes. It was opened in 1843 to decrease the distance that pack-horses carting clay had to travel. The clay, owned by Lord Clifford, was excavated from the Chudleigh Knighton, Preston and Kingsteignton areas. Originally the pack-horses carted the clay to the clay cellars in the Hackney hamlet from where the bargemen or lightermen loaded the barges. The ruins of the Hackney hamlet are a few hundred metres from Hackney Marshes, further along the footpath to the estuary. The canal enabled barges to go right up to Kingsteignton. Trading along the canal ceased in 1928.

Knightshayhes Court

Designed by William Burges and begun in 1869, Knightshayes is a rare survival of his work. The rich interiors combine medieval romanticism with sumptuous Victorian decoration and hold many interesting treasures. The smoking and billiard rooms, elegant boudoir and drawing room all give a wonderful insight into the ‘high noon’ of grand country house life.  Equally beautiful and interesting is the garden, in which a dozen or so distinct parts have been created. These include a water lily pool, drifts of spring bulbs, woodland walks and lawns, summer-flowering borders and an amusing topiary.

Flete House
The garden at the historic Flete House in South Devon is slowly being restored after decades of neglect. A Victorian walled garden which was left to fall into disrepair for 50 years, is being restored to its former glory. The garden is at Flete Estate - an historic site near Ermington in South Devon.  There has been a Manor at this spot since the time of the Conquest. Then, during the 19th century the magnificent gardens were created.  However, the gardens slipped into disrepair at the outbreak of WW2, and from 1956 to 1998, they were used to grow Christmas trees. And the project even has the support of the Chinese Government.

Heddon Hall
Whenever it has been opened in the past for the NGS, Heddon Hall Garden has attracted widespread admiration. Jane Keatley began her work here in 1987, with creative input from luminaries such as Carol Klein and Roy Lancaster. Taking advantage of its sheltered position, she has made it very much a gardener’s garden, with a wonderful collection of exotic species, shrubs and ferns, many of which are the results of dendrological trips abroad.  The walled garden, laid out by Penelope Hobhouse, has clipped box hedges and cordoned fruit trees as well as flowers, herbs and vegetables. The mainly herbaceous rose garden is home to some ‘bizarre’ pleached limes trees. This leads onto a glorious informal rockery and bog garden, where the River Heddon tumbles into the three renovated stew ponds.  Enjoy the intimate valley setting from the terrace afterwards with a delicious home made cream tea.

The rich interiors combine medieval romanticism with sumptuous Victorian decoration and hold many interesting treasures. The smoking and billiard rooms, elegant boudoir and drawing room all give a wonderful insight into the ‘high noon’ of grand country house life. Edward kemp designed this 50 acre garden at Knightshayes Court but it owes much  to the Amory family who devoted themselves to its development. Formal terraces and summer flowering borders, drifts of spring bulbs, a topiary fox and hounds and a tranquil lily pool. this extends into the ' garden of wood ' of rare trees which is magical. The striking Victorian gothic house is a rich combination of medieval romanticism and lavish decoration. Knightshayes Court is just great!
