Walked along to the house that my bed in Exeter, not far from the Exe Bridges. Moving its location over fifty years ago it looks top heavy and about to fall - but I'm sure it's ok! Bridal shop inside too.

Wasn’t open when we went but can look into the window of this bridal shop and see the charming wooden interior. Visit took 5 minute. Opposite very sweet church too

Beautiful building. It currently holds a bridal shop but it is worth seeing if you enjoy older buildings. Just across from a lovely second hand book shop ‘Book Cycle’ that I’d recommend also!

It’s worth watching the 1960s BBC documentary before visiting as this will fill in any gaps. A typically ridiculous British eccentric thing to do..... to lift up a whole house and move it a short distance... Lovely Tudor design

In the early 1960's a bypass and newer road networks were needed for Exeter city. One of the new roads was to pass through this house believed to have been built in 1430. Rather than demolish it, the house was moved and rebuilt in 1961...More
