Raised pavement, steps, ramps and attached conduit on west side of street. Probably C18 and C19 with earlier origins. Stone rubble revetment with dressed stone coping and steps and cobbled surface partly replaced with concrete setts. The raised pavement runs for about 100 metres on the west side of Hen Street and incorporates a stream conduit and steps and ramps down to the lower street level. Although the exposed masonry might date from the C18 and C19 the origin of this raised pavement is probably earlier and it makes an important contribution to the townscape of Bradninch.
Date first listed: 28th January 2003
