Bedehouse Bank, from the Exeter Estate Book of 1826/7
The legend ‘Bourne Eau’ marks the non-navigable part of the river. The head of the navigation basin arising from the 1780 Bourne Eau Navigation Act is the broad part to the top. The ditch to the right is known as part of the Car Dyke but is a medieval diversion of the Roman feature with which the road towards the bottom runs parallel. The Roman line would enter the plan at about the middle of the bottom edge. The owners are named in the corresponding list.
