We are lucky to have buildings dating from 1700s in the north part of our town. There is the remarkable 17th Century ‘colleges’ for clergy widows and spinsters (still lived in) and the Church tower dates from the 14th Century. The Bishop’s Palace is a Victorian upgrade on a 17th Century building. There’s even some older shops in the upper high street.
