About Exeter's Underground Passages

Medieval subterranean passages built to provide the city with a constant supply of fresh water from springs outside the walls. The water would travel through lead pipes. As these pipes would sometimes spring leaks, and to avoid the expense and time involved with keep digging them up the passages were constructed using the cut and cover method in the 14th century. This is the only passages of their kind open to the public in the UK giving its visitors the opportunity to see an audio-visual presentation about the underground passages before being guided down beneath the city through a sequence of tunnels.
