|Name:||Medieval watercourse in St Andrew's Street, adjacent to number 41|
In 1978 there was a serious subsidence in the road at this point after heavy rainfall. It was speculated that this was due to water seeping into an old trench fill which was then slipping and being carried away towards the line of the 'Cockey'. However, no signs of a tunnel or drain were found.
