Clay pipes from the Cathedral School

This well-preserved series of pipes dating to c. 1670-1700 was found in a pit in the house of the Chancellor of the Cathedral. Some of the examples are complete and several others near-complete. The group illustrates the typical heavy form of pipes made in Devon at this time, especially in Exeter and Plymouth, which both had important factories manufacturing such pipes.
