    The Cross keys Hotel is an 850 year old building located on High Street. The Hotel has plenty of old features inside, and on the outside is an ornamental relief work known as pargeting.

    On the Corner of King and High street, at street level, are two of the original 15th century window's.

    The striped house in my photo is a 15th century hall house.

    The "Row's" was the Town's medieval shopping centre, with 33 of the 46 shop's located here in 1630. The shop's began as Market stall's, and over time became shop's!
    Cross street is good to walk down, as there are many Tudor style shop window's still there.

    Firstly, this is where the Tourist Information centre is located, and where you can pick up the Town Trail map that starts at the Market Place.

    A Town Market has been held here twice weekly in the Market Square every Tuesday and Saturday, from the 13th century. Surrounding the Square are many Victorian building's, and located in the centre, is an ornate drinking fountain.
    The fountain was a gift to the town from the Gibson family to commemorate the marriage of The Prince of Wales to Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

    Favorite thing: The back door of the house leads you to a small cafe, which serves coffee, tea & cakes, all for a reasonable price.

    Fondest memory: The sunset that we had at the end of the day was excellent! First the mist came down and then the sun burned it away to create an awesome sunset. Check the photos to see what I mean.

    Favorite thing: Due to the fact that we officially had not paid the entrance fee to the House, we were limited to just a few rooms but from what I saw, I will be going back again.
