Goswell (or Gosehanwell) Lane was the medieval name for the lane that passed the Goshane Well, i.e. the forerunner of the modern Water Lane which runs from Cumberland Place to Commercial Road. Originally this lane continued southwards along the east side of the modern Mayflower Theatre to meet Canshut Lane in modern Blechynden Terrace. It followed a natural streambed and formed the north west boundary of West Marlands common field. According to the 16th century town map it continued eastwards along the common field boundary i.e. modern Cumberland Place to Above Bar Street: in other words it was identical with Lubery Street.

Gosewell Acre
In the 14th century this was an acre in West Marlands Field.
