Some 'fun' facts about Kennford to entertain you whilst you're there.
In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Islesdescribed Kennford like this:
Kenford, vil., Kenn par., Devon, 4 miles S. of Exeter; P.O.
And... then not much happened until the 1970s when the new service station on the Devon Expressway opened. To add to the interestingness here is an explaination of what an Expressway is, taken from the Roader's Digest:
An Expressway is an official term used by the Department for Transport and Highways England to describe Dual Carriageway Trunk Roads that are mostly grade separated, mostly dual carriageway and capable of providing mile a minute speeds outside of urban areas. They are designed to be capable of providing motorway standard journeys that are reliable and resilient to delay. They are also designed to be as safe as motorways, but are generally built where a motorway is not needed, normally because the traffic demand isn't there to fill one.
And now Kennford has a Fine Pair! - Things are really looking up!
