Regents Canal   'the cut'   York Way/Caledonian Rd   Kings Cross   Islington

  Because it was  'cut' ,  manually , out of  the ground , by
  'navvies'  -  navigational engineers (Labourers)  -  using only picks and spades

                                  the 'cut'

 Did you 'save' the twopence'boys pool'

entrance fee to the Caledonian Road swimming

  baths by 'going down the cut' to swim?

        or did you just catch sticklebacks?
