The original short lane – once a ghost of its former self

View from the West, looking towards the Old Steine

It might have been the first, but it's no longer the shortest!

It is situated at the junction of Gloucester Street and St George's Place
(London Road/Old Steine segment)
by The North Laine pub (formerly the Gloucester night club),
not far from St Peter's church.
What is it there for?
It's about the length of a small bicycle
and is usually covered over by a parked car or skip.

See it how it used to be

View from the east, toward the North Laine
(did you know that 'laine' is Anglo-Saxon for field?)

To prove that it actually is a cycle lane (or path), there's this sign nearby
