70 Castle Street
On your right is 70 Castle Street, which was known as ‘The Beggars’ Neffie’ (fistful), since a man who once lived there took part in a peculiar form of trade. The local beggars were at one time given a handful of grain from the town’s charities, in order for them to survive.
With this they would head up Castle Street to No. 70 where they subsequently traded the grain for cash from the owner. Who knows what they did with the money — some perhaps making for the nearest alehouse!
