25) SILVER STREET
The path takes you back to Ely Porta (6) through which you
may pass and turn right into the Gallery once more. Before you proceed
up the Gallery, look at the weavers' cottages along SILVER STREET (25).
These buildings date from the 14th century; wall paintings recently discovered
in the houses suggest this. The red brick building across Barton Square
was the former Theological College and is now part of the King's School.
Notice also the traditional red Telephone Kiosk on the green, it is protected
by an official Preservation Order and will not be replaced! Cross the
road opposite the Cathedral and take up trail A once more from the Lamb
Hotel (18). This will lead you back to Oliver Cromwell's House.
