Back to Time Period
Model of The House that Moved, Frog Street

This sturdy and well-carpentered late medieval house (dating to around c. 1500) stood at the corner of Frog Street and Exe Bridge until the 1960s. During developments to the roads in the area it was moved on rollers to West Street, where it now stands.

The model suggests how it would have been used. On the ground floor is the shop. Above this is the hall, with chamber (bedroom) and cockloft above.
