Inspeximus: Poetry from the manors of The Roborough Hundred, re-examines an area in south west Devon where the bustling community around Buckland Monachorum was once much more heavily populated than any of the Plymouth manors. Moving from the Anglo-Saxon period to the Norman Conquest and beyond, the unusual genre of weaving poetry from manorial and local history seeks to peer into the past through a searching tangent of the imagination. Each manor had its own story to tell and was occupied and worked by colourful personalities. Here in the early 21st century with so much destroyed by either war or development, a stop to pause and look by physically visiting former manorial sites and envisaging how people would have lived, offers a tangible breath of the past.
