II

Section of wall containing dipping place for drinking water and gate piers to the
drive of Culver House.
Local grey limestone rubble with dressed coping stones and ashlar gate-piers. Tall
stone wall with a round-headed niche for dipping place (disused).
Tall gate piers of square section with pyramidal caps. Larger inner gate piers have
deep chamfered inside corners, the chamfers have stops or moulded corbels at their
tops on which there are flat cap stones.
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
Water'.
In 1867 William Bower Scott presented a refinement of this system to the Parish to
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.
