“The form, attractiveness and uniqueness of the town, as a whole, is of international significance. Few towns in Western Europe exhibit such a remarkably intact assemblage of medieval features. The juxtaposition of walls, towers, castle, fosse, ramparts, priory, market place, street layout, mature trees, and open spaces, together with views in and out of the town, is exceptional. Not only does the town exhibit one of the most outstanding Anglo-Norman medieval settlement forms and features, but the overall structure and heritage value is far more that the sum of the component parts”
