The cobbled street in the foreground does have a name, it’s Eastern Lane, but just across the road ahead there’s an anonymous open doorway. There’s a glimpse of light and greenery beyond the dark entrance, no street name but no ‘keep out’ sign either. Let’s explore further.
You emerge from this doorway into an open courtyard
Round to the left a garden gate leads to a house with blue window frames which seems to have been partly swallowed by its neighbours
Straight ahead there are tall, old warehouse buildings, now converted into attractive apartments, and another dark doorway
Look back as you plunge into the darkness and this is the courtyard view
Keep straight on and you’ll come out here, right on the quayside – an ancient short cut through a lane with no name
