"Cathedral Close" Cathedral Close Tip by leics
Cathedral Close, Exeter: 8 reviews and 16 photos
There are some truly ancient buildings in the area surrounding the Cathedral (always known as a 'close' in England). This area is where those who worked in and for the cathedral were traditionally house.
There were once seven gates into the close area: St Petrock's (see tip) was one of them
Of course, most of Exeter's ancient close buildings have long gone..destroyed in bombing or before then. But a few remain, to the northern edge of the close.
Look at the doorways and windows in particular. They give away a building's age.
The buildings in the photos almost certainly date from the 1400-1500s.
