Just about every market place that I have visited up and down this
land is known to the old locals as the hill, I still call it the hill myself.
I think it goes back into antiquity, some say it is because markets were held up against the walls of castles which were nearly always built on
hills. :) If you Google "market hill" you will get reams of market hills
up and down the country.

Was part time at Staith quay during the floods,having waded to the station and getting one engine and the service wagon out they sent us to a stack fire out of town which when we got there they decided to let it burn so we came back into lynn, Getting the engines out was more like a Will Hay film with men stepping into the service pit after the boards had floated away
