in Walcot street could be described as the good the bad and the ugly,
however beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the street certainly
has that from the 1960s hotel to the magnificent church at the
top which is the last resting place of the Revd George Austen, father
of one of the citys most celebrated residents, Jane Austen.
Walcot Street once housed the citys artisans and the local corn
and livestock markets, and is rapidly coming back to life with some
colourful shops and the unique development of the old Tram shed.
In between there are to be found interesting nooks, crannies and lanes
plus a rare opportunity to see the rear view of the seven stories of
Georgian Paragon Buildings.
