SS 70 SW
2/29 Raised pavement approximately
- 400m long between Station Road to
east and Crispins Cottage to west


Raised pavement. Probably C18 with C19 alterations. Pitched cobble walkway with
some late C19 grey machine-brick paths inserted and 1 inserted concrete path. Local
mudstone front revetment with mudstone and granite coping. Raised pavement
approximately 2m high above road. The pavement at left (east) end ramps up from
road level. The revetment is broken towards the left (east) end by a flight of
mudstone steps outside Sutton View. Near the centre, outside Chanterhayes (q.v.) is
a brick-roofed vault under the pavement with plain wooden gates onto the street.
Close by, to the right and outside the Church Room, is a cobbled ramp up to the
pavement which includes a cast iron late C19-early C20 waterpump near the bottom.
The revetment walls of the ramp have plain C20 iron railings with timber posts on
the front side and late C19 iron railings with fleur-de-lys heads alternating with
hoops and set in granite coping to the rear. To the right (west) of this and
outside the Post Office is a flight of slate steps flanked on the front by engaged
red machine-brick piers with granite pyramid caps. On either side are flat-roofed
vaults under the pavement with plain gates to the road and these too are flanked by
similar piers. Near the right (west) is a flight of mudstone steps from the road to
the pavement outside No. 1 Felton House.
