  • There is a dropped kerb from the Broad Street roadway between the 140cm wide bollards into Corn Street.
  • Advertising boards may be placed between some of the bollards restricting choice of access.
  • The surface is flagstones which are fairly level but may have gaps between the stones (photograph 5).

Pedestrian Zone

  • The pedestrian zone has uneven paving, with some wider gaps between paving stones.
  • There is a street market here every Wednesday which may restrict access as it is very busy.
  • In front of the Exchange Building, to the left, are the four bronze 16th century 'Nails' on which merchants carried out their business (photographs 5 and 6).
