Chenery St

grid reference TM 163 448 (approximate location)

Chenery Street ran north from Crown Street, roughly where Crown Pools now stand.

The Alma is a river on the Crimea peninsular in the Ukraine. The first battle of the Crimea war between Russian soldiers and a successful, but unusually united, combined British and French force was fought here on the 20th September 1854. The Russian counter-attack one month later was at Balaclava which is today better remembered for one of the British cavalry's most famous heroic disasters.
