Honiton was most famous for its lace, in 1865 Queen Victoria had her wedding dress trimmed with Honiton lace.  The town grew along fosse way in Roman times and was an important stopping point, mentioned in the doomsday boom as, Honiton, partly meaning farm and becoming an important farming town. Hot Pennies day is a local tradition which spans back to the 13th century, still today this is celebrated on the first Tuesday after the 19th July. The reason for pennies being thrown hot, was that the affluent people who threw out the pennies took great delight in seeing the peasants burn their fingers whilst collecting them. Thankfully Now they are merely warm. Starting at 12 noon from the Old Pannier Market, The Town Crier hoisting up a garlanded pole with a gloved hand at the top, proclaims that “No man may be arrested so long as this glove is up.” This was to ensure that everyone would come to Honiton for the fair which followed the ceremony, without fear of being arrested for their debts; they would otherwise have stayed away. The pole is kept on show for the remainder of “fair week” at the last Public House. Lucky our man and van removals Honiton are not paid by hot pennies.
