I see that the verse with the second line
"steering like a waggon with a wheel adrift"
has a variety of first lines.

"Up the cobbles to Cromer Cliff" (Steve Gardham )

"Through the Cockles to Cromer cliff," (Charley Noble )

The Singing Histories site, on the link I gave two posts above this, says
    "Through the Cockle to Cromer Cliff,"
The capital letter for Cockle and Cockles suggested to me that this might a reference to a geeographical feature called the Cockle or the Cockles. Is there such a feature near Cromer?
