    Default River Streets

    Hello Ross - These are just the remnants of a whole complex - the name
    'Close' says it all. The ones that used to be were really streets, some quite
    long. Here are all those I can remember offhand:

    Medlock, Leven,Nith, Dart, Stour, Doon, Avon, Orwell, Tawd ,Tyne

    Some of these are again mere remnants, others have gone altogether, Orwell still exists as a proper street.
