10 Really Old & Beautiful Streets of Britain

1. Vicars' Close - Wells Vicar's Close in Wells actually claims to be the oldest complete surviving residential street in Europe. Dating from the mid-14th century, it comprises numerous Grade I listed buildings, 27 residences (originally 44), built for Bishop Ralph of Shrewsbury, a chapel and library at the north end, and a hall at the south end, over an arched gate. 2. The Shambles - York This old street in York has overhanging timber-framed buildings, some dating back as far as the 14th century. Shambles is an old world word for an open air slaughterhouse and meat market. As recently as 1872 twenty-five butchers' shops were located along the street, but now none remain. 3. Gold Hill
