Cedar Lane - aka the Old Cedar Walk - has served as a pedestrian short-cut between King Street and Margaret Lane, since defined as such by a line of cedar trees planted 200 years ago. Four of the original trees still remain, with new cedars recently planted for future generations to enjoy. A lovely garden graces the north entrance to the walk.
"Coming south down Cedar Lane after dark, there's a view of my house with the porch light on and the old cedars in the foreground. It has the feeling of darkness, night, perhaps a tiny suggestion of peril and the warm and welcoming porch light, the yellow siding and red shutters, offering shelter, a little oasis beckoning. Hanging from a branch of the cedar are the old green-hazed tubes of a set of wind-chimes that my deceased brother gave me, that speak to me of him. " ~ David Payne, author
