St Andrew's Street (Darn Crook)


Now known as St Andrew's Street. "It was called Darn Crook (Darnecruke 1394) - dark secret place, until the 1980s. Darn Crook has long been a short lane south of the church which ran from Newgate Street up to the town walls. About 1810 the city walls were breached to enable the street to run directly into Gallowgate. In 1830 there was a windmill on its northern side on the edge of St Andrews churchyard. Virtually the whole of both sides of the street was rebuilt in the early C20...." (SiteLines)
