A system for bringing water to Chudleigh town from the lowest slopes of Haldon was in
existence at the end of the C16: both the supply system and the water known as 'Pot

improve the supply of water both for cooking and extinguishing fires.
The tall stone wall is an important feature of the New Exeter Street streetscape.
