Paraffin Alley, Keswick
Paraffin Alley, Keswick
Located at the southern end of Main Street, Paraffin Alley LinkExternal link runs behind shops on Market Square.
So called because in times past the alley always had a faint odour of paraffin, which was stored at the back of an ironmonger's shop. The street sign was only put up in 2008, after a local campaign. However, some nearby business owners were not too happy with the name's smelly connotation. (Information from a report in the "News and Star" LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ).
