Cut Throat Alley

I was looking for a photo of Cut Throat Alley recently and was astonished to find that I had not posted one so I went on a walk to take this one.

The alley separates the realms of the two great houses in Ham, Ham House (on the left) and The Manor House (on the right) and it leads from Ham Street to the formal Ham Avenues that march relentlessly around Ham House.

Unlike the straight Ham Avenues, Cut Throat Alley has a quirky kink in the middle that keeps its destination secret.

Update Jan 2015: Cut Throat Alley has been resurfaced and the access to it has been improved. See this post for details.
