High Street
High Street
Seen here at its junction with Needles Bank (on the right). On the left, just after the zebra crossing, is a footpath to Court Road (see TQ3551 : Footpath to Court Road). The hearthstone wall beyond is reputed to date from the 15th century but considered by some to be more likely to be 17th/18th century. It features galleting in many of the mortar joints (see TQ3551 : Wall, High Street for close up of a similar wall slightly further south along High Street) and is grade II listed - see LinkExternal link.
Galleting (or galletting or garnetting) is the practice of inserting small pieces of hard stone (such as ironstone or flint, depending on the region) into the mortar of a wall, generally to protect and strengthen the mortar, but sometimes for decorative effect.
