Honiton Town in Devon
Honiton lies 17 miles northeast of Exeter in southeast Devon. The town grew along the Roman road linking Exeter to Lincoln, more commonly known as the Fosse Way.
Honiton, recorded in the Domesday Book as \'Honetone\', is probably best known for its Honiton Lace, an industry introduced by Flemish traders in the 16th and 17th centuries.
Today with a population of about 12,000, it is a handy stopping off point for travelers heading east from Torbay into Dorset or as a link to the A303 trunk road to Somerset and beyond. Honiton stands at the junction of the A30, the A35 and A373 roads and has a good link with the M5 motorway via Junction 28 at Cullompton some ten miles away. Honiton railway station has a link to London Waterloo.
Highlights of the area include Marwood House, Ottery St Mary, Hembury Fort, Dumpdon Hill, the Blackdown Hills as well as the East Devon coast at Sidmouth and Beer.
The nearest source of local information is available from Honiton Tourist Information Centre.
