Royal Oak Yard
Royal Oak Yard
Named after a pub here called the Royal Oak in 1680. Caves cut into the red sandstone cliffs on the right were once used by tinsmith. Access to High Street via steps has now been closed.

Today the yard is home to offices and some housing. The Tin Brook flows underneath.

Access is via a cobbled lane under St Petersgate Bridge from Little Underbank SJ8990 : Royal Oak Yard.
