Alley / Score / Shute
- a term used to describe almost any narrow road or walkway, implies something
away from main roads ie back alley.
There are a huge nimber of regional variations in the names given to them, "scores" and "shutes" are
two which are reasonably common.
These routes are important because very often
they give good clues to the foundations of towns, they can reveal old boundary
enclosures and building lines, and blocked doors
and windows where they pass
close to buildings.
