4:  Carfax & Piries Place

Chart Way leads into the Carfax where the plaque can be found at the entrance to Pirie's Alley, a medieval twitten (narrow alley) leading to the new retail development of Pirie's Place with its bronze statue of former local headmaster, Mr Pirie, and his donkey.

Further along the Carfax, the Olde King's Head has an 18th century fašade, but the rest of the building is of older construction.  For many years an ancient coaching inn, it was once an Inland Revenue office and later a focus for public and political meetings.
