Talk at Crediton Probus club

A talk on the 1836 Crediton Improvement Parliament Act

When: to July  2011
Where:The Red Lion Inn, Shobrooke, Crediton EX17 1AT

There were improvement acts for many market towns in the country at that time. For Crediton, the main improvement was to widen and increase the number of the roads. This meant the demolition of many houses and shambles (shops) that were located in the centre of the High Street.

John illustrated his talk with slides and humorous stories.

26 people attended the talk.
