Veitch trail


Walk the guided trail that celebrates the Veitch family’s horticultural dynasty and their connection with Exeter and the city’s proud history of engineering.

See 17 restored and painted cast iron lamp posts around the St David’s neighbourhood, where the Veitch nurseries, orchard and family home were. The trail of lamp posts starts in Elm Grove, where Robert and later Peter, Veitch lived. It even ventures through St David’s Churchyard where Peter Veitch is buried.

The Garton and King garlanded lamp post in Bystock Terrace is a civic lamp post with ivy in relief and the city coat of arms on the base. It has been pained by sign writer Mark Hill. The other lamp posts in the trail have been painted by Botanical illustrator, Kate Wilson with significant Veitch plants.

Meet at the upper entrance to Bury Meadow Garden, by the information board.
