Back in the 1930’s (and for some time before that) the area at the end of Bowden Lane, adjacent to the old railway line was a marshy area that, because of the natural springs, was utilised as Watercress beds. Over time, due to changes in the topography and a reduction in demand the area became a dark, muddy part of the Back Stream that had a strange bubbling spring in the middle of it.
