This site is a sort of museum in cyberspace full of odds and ends about life in Budleigh Salterton. It celebrates among other things the connection between our corner of East Devon - birthplace of both Sir Walter Raleigh and Roger Conant, founder of Salem, Massachusetts - and the United States of America. The site was inspired by the friendship link established in 2001 with the Cape Cod community of Brewster.
