The name pantiles originally referred to a form of tile used in paving and (more often) roofing. Today the name is also used to refer to an area in the town of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England which formerly used such tiling.
Pantiles are defined by dictionaries as roofing tiles, S-shaped in section. It seems that the use of pantiles for paving in Tunbridge Wells is unusual if not unique.
