“Tamar”, Exeter: gridlocked

“Tamar Security” burglar alarm, Exeter • Ah, the eternally gridlocked Tamar Bridge, slender link across he Tamar between Devon and Cornwall. It’s not named after the Jewish temptress of Biblical legend (more’s the pity), but an ancient British word meaning something like “dark flowing”, as is the Thames. • Spotted: Town centre, Exeter, Devon, EX1, England, 2009 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Exeter
