Duke Street, formerly Craggs Lane, is one of the oldest streets in the town. In this photograph, the original of which was taken in 1850, can be seen the very narrow street which was only 17 feet wide. There were actually houses adjoining the south wall of Holy Trinity Church.The church was built as Trinity Chapel for Thomas Reade Kemp in 1817 and almost certainly these houses were already there then. The small photograph on the right (next) gives an even clearer view of this corner.
