The most distant building visible, white fronted and standing a little forward of its neighbours, is the Clinton Arms on the Market Square. A little closer, with stereotypical Tudor half-timbered overhanging upper floor, is the Governor's House at the corner of the Square.

The most distant (white) building visible stands on the junction with Castle Gate, and is in the right foreground of the next photo. The ancient Woolpack Inn is about half way down the street but difficult to see. It is also white-fronted, but is sandwiched between two red brick buildings each about twice its height.

This photo in fact shows the entire length of the street, with the Governor's House at the corner of the Market Square as the most distant building visible - the projecting first floor is the most easily spotted aspect. The low-fronted Woolpack Inn is seen beyond and immediately to the left of the white van in the foreground.
The large brick building with tall pointed slate roof is St. Mary's Church Rooms, on the corner of Guildhall Street (on the far side of the building, but difficult to identify in this photo). The parish church dominates the scene despite being just over a quarter of a mile away from the camera. The large white building apparently in front of the church is in fact the end of a block of shops on the left of the road, where it narrows at the Carter Gate end, and is closer to the camera than the two gable ended buildings which can be seen in both this photo and (much closer) the next.
This photo (15,798 bytes) was taken from the junction with Carter Gate and Appleton Gate on 29th October 2003. It is difficult to believe now that this narrow street was part of the Great North Road from London to York and Edinburgh until some time in the nineteenth century.
This photo (20,736 bytes) of Castle Gate was taken on 29th October 2003, from the south corner of the Castle grounds, looking towards the junction with Bargate and Beastmarket Hill. The distant red brick building immediately to the right of the lamp-post in this picture is the former Ram hotel, while the adjacent much smaller, white fronted and steep-roofed building to the left of the post is the Royal Oak, which faces Beastmarket Hill.
