In various places around the city you will see the stepping stones which people used to cross the street (which would have been full of water, mud or animal droppings. You will also notice ridges worn into the road in some places, They say that these were worn down by carts passing but i feel that if that were so they would be all down the street and not just near the stepping stones. It seems more likely to me that they were actually carved there so that the cart wheels would go into them thus stopping the wheels from hitting the stepping stones or other various points and being damaged
