The Street of the Keeping of Hens

Hengate in Beverley is a busy little ratrun across town. A sign nearby informs the passing tourist that Hengate gets its name from the keeping of hens in olden days, well I think we might have guessed that. On Hengate  is a pub known to all and sundry as Nellie's; I know it's got a sign saying White Horse Inn, it's just called Nellie's, ok, just don't ask awkward questions.
