Topsham

Ancient right exercised

See the BBC story Traffic makes way for sheep herd for a video of Mary Evans exercising her right as an honorary alderman to herd sheep down Fore Street. Note the error in the story: "Traffic came to a standstill in a Devon town when an ancient right to drive sheep through the town was exercised". Fore Street is always closed to traffic from 1.30pm on Carnival Day, so nothing was stopped for the sheep-herding at 2.30.
