Uncategorized Crediton II July 10, 2014 admin Leave a comment We started the day going out for coffee with my cooperating teacher back in 1981, Robin Langhorne. While I had my camera with me I forgot to take his photo. Still, we had a great two hour talk and then Alex and I headed to Powderham Castle. The castle was outstanding. While still more of a manor house, it had a rich history and the grounds were beautiful. Sitting on 3500 acres it hosts a couple of wildlife sanctuaries. These wood carvings date back to the early 1400s and are in the estate’s chapel. Around it are gorgeous gardens. Unfortunately this tower suffered through two fires and is no longer in use. There are beautiful views from this hill. We spent 4.5 miles at Powderham Castle. The guided tour was excellent and we found out how the phrase, “Save face,” came to be and also the derivation of someone not being worth their salt. The castle had many secret doors and Alex was able to identify them all. We bid adieu to Crediton tomorrow and travel to Taunton.
