Church Walk, from Appleton Gate. This footpath runs along the south side of the parish church, separating it from the rear of buildings which face onto the Market Square. The photo (28,683 bytes) was taken on 29th October 2003.
About half way along the path is this old chimney, rising straight from the ground. It was once used to serve the boiler which provided heating for the church. The church window half visible just left of centre of the previous photo can be partly seen on the right of this one. This photo (18,869 bytes) was also taken on 29th October 2003.
This view (21,372 bytes, again taken on 29th October 2003) of Church Walk from Church Street, also shows the former church boiler chimney, which stands in isolation from the rest of the building on the other side of the path.
Chain Lane, from Market Square. As can be seen, the entrance from this end passes through one of the buildings on the square. Fifty years ago Chain Lane was home to several thriving businesses, Cook's (optician, watchmaker and jeweller). Lee's (tobacconists) and Lewin's (butcher) among them. On the left at the Market Place end was Cherrington's (chemist). There were two 18th century public houses, the King's Head on the right near the Market Place end and the Duke of Cumberland (later renamed Kerriges) further down on the left. This photo (10,026 bytes) was taken 29th October 2003.
Chain Lane, from Middle Gate, where it emerges as a more normal footpath. The photo (15,606 bytes) was taken 29th October 2003.
Boar Lane meets Middle Gate just about opposite Chain Lane, connecting it with Castle Gate. The former Gilstrap Library, on the other side of Castle Gate, can be seen in the distance. This photo (14,875 bytes) was taken 29th October 2003.
