Gateshead, Pipewellgate, le heddyke Episcopi
The present road line of High Level Road and Rabbit Banks Road may follow a medieval boundary known variously as 'le heddyke Episcopi' or 'fosso Domini Dunelm', which seperated the backlands of properties on the south side of Pipewellgate from the lands retained by the Bishop to the south. In modern accounts the boundary has been variously described as 'a hedge and ditch'.
