Market Place, Saddler and Silver Street

Market Place: The surfaces within the Market Place are mainly level, paved and free from kerbs. There is a slight incline from St Nicholas Church towards the statue. There is a level change of 3 steps around the statue at the exit from the Market Place onto Silver Street but there are alternative routes using the gentle slope either side. There is a mixture of fixed stone and wood seating which are low level, some with arm rests.

Saddler Street: There are 14 steps at the junction with Saddler Street, the steps have handrails to the centre and side. There is alternative sloped access (very steep) to the side of the steps which leads onto Saddler Street between the Market Place and Palace Green. Saddler Street has a steep incline on the approach to North Bailey and Palace Green. The surface is paved and cobbled with narrow paved footpaths.

Silver Street: Surfaces are a mix of cobbles and flagstones. The street is a very steep incline from Framwelgate Bridge into the Market Place with no seats along the route.
