Join local Archivist, Linda Bankier as she leads you on a short walk to discover the stories of the families that lived and worked in the cottages and smokehouses of the Greenses. The Greenses is so called because until the 19th century, although located within the town's medieval walls, much of the land was still open field. A fishing community, the locals were called Greenses Arabs on account of the men's beards and swarthy complexions acquired from putting to sea in all weathers.
