The Book of Honiton
The Book of Honiton
  • Description

Honiton has more than trebled in population since the 1950s, its proximity to Exeter making it an excellent dormitory town for the county capital. That said, there is nothing sleepy about this bustling own with a history that features the Prayer Book Rebellion, the Civil War and Monmouth’s Rebellion.

Although Honiton’s chief industry has always been agricultural, with tourism catching up fast, it is better known for its exquisite Honiton Lace, favoured by royalty for many years, but now only made as a hobby, and the distinctive Honiton Pottery that is no longer manufactured. A modern place with an ancient past and a sure and certain future sums up this Devon market town.

All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 400 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of Honiton and its surrounding parish.

ISBN 1841144088, hardback, 297x210mm, 160 pages.
