Crucifix Lane


Druid St and Crucifix Lane?  The imagination runs wild.  Kate Mosse has written a book titled Crucifix Lane that is set here, but in the future.  What happened here in the past?
British History on-line only mentions the lane briefly as you walk through the area - "under the railway arches, by way of Crucifix Lane, a name which savours of "the olden time," "

Very interesting. I must have been there often but never found out the reason for the name. There is a local history library mind there.

I used to live down a Paternoster Lane which was quite near a Papist Way

This looked so familiar that I had to look it up to see where it was located. I'm pretty sure that I walked through that tunnel years ago when my friends and I were trying to find the restaurant called "Champor-Champor". It was a restaurant that turned out to be simply fantastic.

Quite an unusual pairing of names. It gives the writer in me some ideas...

I wouldn't fancy walking or driving down that road!
