Transcriber's notes

There is a long note in column 1 about changing the name from Friar's Lane to Arnold's Street. I have fitted this in under the alternative Spelling column. JD 16/10/2013.
Strangely, they still use the name Friar's Lane in their descriptions!
I put "see Arnold's Street" under the Friar's Lane entry description column - hope that's ok.
