Not the narrowest street in the world

Flanked by two bakeries, a crappy Greggs on one side, a lovely French Patisserie Valerie on the other, Parliament Street in Exeter, Devon, is the narrowest street in Britain. The metal plaque beside it states: 'Believed to be the narrowest street in the world' but there's a narrower one in Germany. Nevertheless, at only 25 inches wide at its narrowest point, your typical lardy Brit wouldn't fit along it, especially after a visit to both bakeries.
