Stepney Lane

2 Oct

Before Hull got too big for its boots, Stepney was a small hamlet on the road to Beverley close to Sculcoates. I’ve read that it got its name from the presence of a mounting stone or stepping stone, but you how the internet is so take that with a large pinch of good old Saxa salt. Stepney Lane runs from Beverley Road down to the Barmston Drain. There’s a school and the glorious Bull Inn at the far end and a mix of old terraced housing dating from late 1800s/early 1900 and some more modern stuff dating from the 1980s post slum clearance. It’s not exactly a rich area but there were a surprising number of Mercedes, Jaguars and even a Chevrolet parked when I walked down here.
