Heritage Outside – a guided walk around Cathedral Green

The Devon and Exeter Institution has created a WebApp Walk for families which is a fun way to explore historic Cathedral Green, using one of the Institution’s treasures as a guide.

This App has been created so that people can enjoy and learn from one of the books in our collection, even if they are not inside the library.

We have used illustrations from ‘Mural Monuments and other items of historical and general interest to be seen in the Streets of Exeter’ Original drawings by W.G. Croump, 1933 – 1940

About the illustrator

W.G. Croump was an Exeter man and a paper bag manufacturer by trade. He had an amateur interest in architecture and specifically the inscriptions and monuments around Exeter. His drawings form an invaluable record preserved between the covers of ‘Mural Monuments’. This book now has a life beyond the shelves of the Institution.

Get started

We hope that you and your family will enjoy using Croump as your guide around historic Cathedral Green.
