Cobblestone streets in England

Jump to last reply

My travel companion and I had a wonderful driving trip through many parts of England this past Summer(both left trip reports...well...he's a bit slow but getting there) and most of all enjoyed our visits to towns and villages that seemed little changed through the centuries. I was showing some pics to my aunt the other day and she pointed out that some of the historic towns we visited seemed to have many cobblestone streets, but others were smooth/asphalt and much newer. It got me thinking about which towns had the cobbles and which ones didn't--and I am now wondering why?

I remember that Rye, Shrewsbury, York, and Robin Hood's Bay had many cobbled areas, but am now trying to remember if any of the many Cotswold villages were cobbled as well? My pics show otherwise. Not that it matters, but I would like to ask people to name some cities, towns, villages that they know have still kept some of those wonderful old streets, and what the reasons were for their removal from otherwise historic towns?

So, to begin the list:
Rye
Shrewsbury
York
Robin Hood's Bay
Bath?

Also I immediately went to look at photos of Lavenham(did not have a chance to visit) and I cannot find one cobbled street in any pics. Surely this town has some?).

Thanks---hope this topic isn't too boring for readers, I'm just suddenly very interested!
