Sandhills Lane

  • Description

    "...Sandhills Lane is taken from the fact that dunes from the beach originally existed this far into the town and were used as common land for people to mend fishing nets and dry washing etc. It runs between Scotch Street and Schoolhouse Court but originally went as far as Queen Street were the passage now runs below the Queen Street flats. What is now the Christian Brethren Church on Sandhills Lane was for many years a Quaker meeting house..."
