Lunchtime Lectures: History of 38 North Street - Exeter
The second in a series of seven lunchtime lectures on Exeter's historic buildings, given by leading specialists
North Street probably dated back to the 16th Century. It has been described by W. G. Hoskins as "a good example internally of a 15th century dwelling house of a particularly wealthy merchant". Having survived the slum clearances of the 1920s and 1930s,the Second World War and the post-war reconstruction, the house was demolished in the 1970s.
John Thorp will be addressing us for this event. He is a great speaker and his skills in providing a high standard of buildings analysis, research and assessment and producing reports that are reliable, well-illustrated, and free from jargon are highly regarded.
Lectures to take place at St Martin's Church, right in the centre of Exeter. The price per lecture is £4. Please visit Eventbrite to purchase your ticket.
