About us

After moving back to Devon in 2013 after a long absence there seemed to be large gaps in readily available information to feed my quirky curiosity about my new home. No particular problems locating the old railway from Exmouth to Budleigh, but where were the old brickworks sited? Plenty of information about Lady Nelson but I couldn’t initially find a single photo of Exmouth Zoo which only closed in 1980.

I started investigating to help fill the long winter evenings, and this website evolved as somewhere to collate my findings. Hopefully others will find this eclectic collection of mainly recent Exmouth history interesting.
