THE custodians of the town's architectural heritage, the Exmouth Society, have abandoned attempts to erect a Blue Plaque on an historic sea front pub - because of a lack of interest by the owners.Blue Plaques are placed on historical buildings and monuments of importance throughout the town by the society - and provide guided tours of the 'Blue Plaque Trail' in the summer, giving an historical insight to the town.The Bath House, formerly the Deer Leap, was on the list and secretary of the society, Ian Cann, said: "We have decided, with some regret, The Bath House will have to be removed from our list as all attempts to agree a replacement plaque with the owning brewery (Greene King) have been ignored."A review of all other plaques is being carried out, and the wording of the plaques on the Pilot Inn and The Clipper has been agreed, while the plaque for the Gun Field has been replaced.
