Ep. 41: The St David's Symphony Of Sounds (1 of 4)

Created by Crediton resident PHILIP ROBINSON, this is a sonic tapestry of the rich and varied community of St Davids, Exeter. An audio selection of people, places, events, music, things and wildlife - old and new, long-standing and transient, conventional and wayward.

Most tracks recorded within St David’s by PR in Summer 2020, except where otherwise stated.
