Alley alongside Ham House

This alley runs from Melancholy Walk to Ham Street. The wall on the right is part of the long wall that surrounds the Ham House complex.

The dark spot in the distance is where the alley suddenly zigzags which creates a blind section in both directions. This may be why it is called Cut Throat Alley though I am not aware of any dangerous incidents there in recent times and I use the alley regularly. 


  1. Known locally as Cut Throat Alley ...

    1. Well spotted! I've included the name Cut Throat Alley in all the other posts about it but not this one. I'll update it.
