The canal takes a gentle turn by the end of Lower Chestnut Street, to follow what was the valley base. As it does so here, it crosses the old droveway (just the other side of the orange brick tiles following Lower Chestnut Street).
Just beyond – where the tree and nature reserve are on the left, is Hangman’s Acre that was cut by the canal’s construction. You will see from an aerial shot that the houses along Lowell Street are parallel to those on Washington and East Street. Lowell Street was the edge of the ‘acre’ which may explain why the houses along there are numbered sequentially on the North East side of the street …it didn’t exist when the Ice Skating Rink was on the other side of the street.
This is not a campaign …it’s a fact of Worcester life that the fun and silliness of the residents of the Arboretum and Chestnut community is to be admired – because you’re not going to stop it 🙂
Keep Worcester Weird and Wonderful is a Facebook group for just some of the things about Worcester that make you smile daily.
