Leads to the Old Steine
The way from Pool Valley into East Street was via the east gate of the town until 1760 when it was removed for the construction of the battery. Pool Passage, which is off Pool Valley, leads to the Old Steine and is lined with old flint walls.
The Olde Bunn Shoppe
Pool Passage is adjacent to the interesting, grade II*-listed building which was erected in 1794 and is faced with black mathematical tiles. For about 150 years it was used by the Cowley family as a bun shop. The photograph from the James Gray collection shows the sign on the roof which says, ‘Ye Olde Bunn Shoppe’ and was taken in 1954.
