Feature Sets

A general introduction to Glastonbury will be found under the entry for Glastonbury Abbey. Chilkwell Street is to the E of the medieval town centre which includes the large green space containing the ruins of the abbey. The official listing text combines nos. 43 and 45 in one entry, saying it is one building used as two properties; it is of late medieval origin, although altered. The building is of two storeys with a stone facing. A single moulded bracket or corbel is built into the front under the eaves of No. 45.
