Listing Text

CHUDLEIGH NEW EXETER STREET, Chudleigh
SX 8679
6/66 Section of wall opposite Nos 61 and
61A

- II

Section of wall containing dipping place for drinking water. Probably late C190
Local grey limestone rubble with dressed coping stones. Tall stone rubble wall with
a round-headed niche to the right.
A system for bringing water to Chudleigh town from the lower slopes of Haldon was in
existence at the end of the C16: both the supply system and the water known as 'Pot
Water'. In 1867 William Bower Scott presented a refinement of this system to the
Parish to improve the supply of water as both for cooking and extinguishing fires.
Crockett, A. Chudleigh, a chronicle (1985), p. 110-111.
