Hi Millie, Around 1830-40 the neighbourhood of Swanswell and Hillfields was greatly changed, the making of the new road from Cook Street to Red Lane and the many streets connected with that road and Ford Street were not yet laid out on the spittle-moor. They caused an entirely new town to spring up. An old mill stood at the bottom of Cox Street, the house connected was outside the walls near Mill Lane gate, which was known as Hob's Hole. From Mill Lane gate a track-way extended outside the walls along Spinney Lane, so named from a small wood on the bank of the deep brook that led into the Swanswell pool, which was named 'Catchems Corner' - now the junction of Primrose Hill Street and Swanswell Street. Paynes Lane was only a cart-road to Harnall brook, a few houses existed, its track so deplorable that the miller’s wagons often stuck in the ruts up to their hubs. Here in 1880 stood the Brewer and Baker pub.
