Clinkum Bank 1856 OS 6 inch 1st edn.

Sc clinkum + Sc bank

Sc clinkum ‘bell-man, town crier’ is also used of grave-diggers, presumably because the man who held the former occupation was often employed in the latter.

The bank in question has given its name on OS Pathf. to the road which runs north–south across it.
