On June 18, members of the Exmouth Historical and Archaeological Society were treated to two guided tours in Crediton.The first was to the Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross, where our guide described the church and then took us upstairs to the governor's meeting room, where more interesting history was revealed.The second visit was to Downes, the family home of the Buller family. The house, once the home of Sir Redvers Buller, is still used by descendents of the family. One of the rooms holds a variety of historical curios, a number of which relate to his Boer War campaign.The group wishes to thank the society's chairman, Mike Tracey, for organising this enjoyable trip with an excellent lunch and cream tea.Members of the society.
