Totnes Butterwalk, Frith postcard 19c
The Totnes Butterwalk is on the right going up the hill, after passing under the East Gate. The Butterwalk is an old shopping arcade with the first story overhanging the footpath below to afford some protection from the weather, and no doubt to protect goods for sale, dairy products from the weather.
The Butterwalk dates from Tudor times. Stone pillars support the story above.
This image of Totnes’ Butterwalk is taken from a 19c Fritch postcard.
