  Steep Hill, Lincolnshire.

It's called Steep Hill for good reason as you should be able to deduce from the left-hand picture above. That building is called Norman House and dates from around 1180. In the right-hand picture Norman House is visible on the left and the house on the right is known as The Crooked House or, sometimes, the bendy House dating from around 1500.

The lower section of Steep Hill, shown on the left, is the steepest part (notice the handrail) and runs into The Strait. Steep Hill is not the only narrow cobbled street in Lincoln as the picture of Danesgate, on the right, shows.
