By David Ross, Editor of 'Britain Express' (with acknowledgement) :

"I visited Budlake as part of an excursion taking in Killerton House, Killerton Chapel, Markers Cottage, Broadclyst Mill, and the medieval church in Broadclyst village......

"The Post Office itself is very small, but it is crammed to the rafters with the myriad of items that a traditional village shop would have stocked.

"Anyone older than fifty will get a bit misty-eyed when browsing the shelves, which are crammed with everything from Coronation memorabilia to 1950s magazines and canned food."

Two lych gates at the end of the public house carpark open into Church Lane.
The lane is in the foreground and leads to the church.
Broadclyst Church may be accessed here .
