Full description

In High Street there are some especially good areas of round cobbles, particularly on the west side, some forming decorative patterns. It is likely these date from the time that classical detail was added (early 19th century). There is a similar extent on the east side, but this is narrower, less well maintained and somewhat covered over with tarmacadam in places. Nevertheless, overall this is a remarkable survival which needs to be carefully conserved. Other details: Map.
