This water course is popular in local legend. It is said T E Lawrence of Arabia navigated his way through the culvert in 1909.
It is also said that in the 1900s/1920s/1930s, while exploring, dredging, excavating, swimming in Trill Mill Stream, somebody found two to three rotten Victorian rat gnawed skeletons in a rotten Victorian punt.
Trill mill stream was culverted in 1863. The last photo is modern and is directly under Westgate Shopping Centre.
