  1. I think the first clip is inside Victoria Rec alongside the allotments. Is it possible that the second clip is reversed, as I think it’s the path that ran alongside Victoria Rec (parallel to Rheims Way). The metal railings which I believe still exist should be on the right. The other side was a field. Its head on to the west door of the cathedral so the location fits.
