Along Newhall Street outside the NCP car park, between Charlotte Street and Lionel Street.
For a time in the early nineteenth century a roller coaster known as the Russian Mountains, stood on Graham Street and made use of the steep slope of Newhall Hill. Riders apparently sat in little two-seater cars which raced down inclines, sped around curves, and climbed a slope with the aid of a winch.
