A little bit of mapping
It's been a quiet mapping time, but today after a discussion about some areas of Hull I found myself checking out some of the ten foots off Spring Bank West. A ten foot is the local name for an alley. They run behind rows of houses which are often terraces so these ten foots give access to the back of the houses. The land that fronts onto the ten foot are almost all garages, maybe at one time it would have been a garden. A few of these alleys have been closed to public access with gates. In fact I have no idea of the access status of an ungated ten foot. They tend to be untidy and unkempt and now the wheelie bins just make things worse.
