As part of the Crediton Festival CCB is proud to be hosting a talk on The Royal Clarence Fire and Exeter's Ancient Buildings by Dr Todd Gray MBE.
One consequence of Exeter's recent fire in Cathedral Close has been a resurgence of public interest in our ancient buildings. Dr Gray will discuss that event and then outline the current plans to bring into the public domain the research already undertaken by a wide range of individuals and to develop new lines of enquiry.
Dr Gray is a Research Fellow at Exeter University and the author of more than 40 books on Devon's history.
