Other information

It is almost certain that this was the site of the town goal which was part of the Monks’ Gate (East Gate) in the Town Wall.

The Cibi Brook runs beneath Beili Lane at the rear.

There is a story of a prisoner taking up a flagstone in the floor and escaping via the stream running beneath.
