In it's prominent position on the Fosse Way it was an important staging post for travellers requiring to rest and change horses. The broad High Street has many elegant inns and houses that are characteristic of a town that developed in the great 'wool' trading days. In the narrow burrage plots and back lanes
interesting houses and cottages huddle together in a mix-match of styles, unified by being built of glowing, honey coloured stone that belongs only to the cotswolds.

Of the town's historic buildings, the oldest is the 16th-century Curfew tower on the High Street, whose bell was rung to warn the towns-folk of the risk of fire. The splendid Redesdale Market Hall is a noteworthy building of the 18th-century and the Redesdale Arms, also situated in High Street, is an attractive 17th-century building. The parish church of St.David is an interesting church that contains reminders of an ancient past and has many treasures.
