Formerly listed as: The Causeways (Streets and Lanes - The Cross, The Back Lane, Hagg's Wynd Back Causeway, In Front Of The Town House on Sandhaven, Mid Causeway, Little Causeway - Which Are Surfaced With Cobbles Or Setts). Cobbles and sets were formerly found on other streets. The Burgh resolved in early 1660 that the streets should be causewayed. Kirk Street had an 8 foot wide cambered strip of blue whin setts with borders of multi-coloured cobbles and stone slab gutters (now surfaced with tarmac). Some stone slab gutters remain to Tanhouse Brae. Newgate (now covered by grass) is said to have a raised footpath of irregular cobbles, the kerb being defined by large stones.
