The lost alleys of Tewkesbury are a fascinating subject for research and the naming of these passageways is of great importance to the history of the town. Some carry the name of a pub, many are a reminder of families who lived there and others - such as Fish Valley and Nailers Square - reflect the occupation of the residents. These alleys, the people who lived, worked and eventually died there, are the story of the town itself. They reflect its growth, its industry, its fortunes and misfortunes, and recreate a sense of Tewkesbury. The Lost Alleys of Tewkesbury will delight both residents and visitors alike who want to discover more of the town's character and how it has changed over the years.
