Exeter, Devon, England

A few surviving classically-inspired buildings from Exeter. Before World War II the city had some of the finest Georgian architecture in England outside London and Bath. Unfortunately over 50% was destroyed or damaged during the war and it wasn't restored afterwards:


The Custom House built 1680-1681

Very nice photos. The first few buildings look very much like parts of Boston (the one in Massachusetts, not the original).


But the destruction of so much architecture in Exeter is a very sad story. What a strange time we all live in - so much of our past has been taken away.

I think it must be the bright red brick as it's quite distinctive, as is the very restrained, cool Georgian classicism that I think some American cities inherited from England. You don't really get it anywhere on continental Europe. I think it's really beautiful!

I agree! It is very much the same as the architecture in Exeter (the buildings that have been preserved): beautifully proportioned and elegant in its simplicity. Old England and New England meeting.

Here we have Faneuil Hall (above) and Beacon Hill (below). I think that they would fit in very nicely in Exeter.
