Cute workers' cottages, terrace houses, narrow streets and historic sites make an interesting walk through this suburb next to the central business district. The first of the larger houses of the settlement were built on the hill that had spring water (hence Spring Hill), overlooking the beginnings of the town and the river. As many of these buildings are still in original condition, it is a delight to admire their features. Start your walk at the windmill, Wickham Terrace, turn right into Birley Street and continue north for three streets to greet Victoria Park on Gregory Terrace. Walk along right to Fortesque Street, going south and into Berry Street and return to Wickham Terrace to see King Edward Park (down the steps--Jacob's Ladder).
