In Speed’s town map of 1611 this name is applied to the stretch of East Street immediately east of the East Gate; its meaning is unknown, and there is no other record of this usage. (Conceivably, this is a misspelling of Bag Row: but if this is the case the indicator should be located at the east end of East Street where Speed has placed an inaccurate marker ‘St Mary Street’.)
