Near this spot occurred, in 1898, the incident depicted in Variation No.11 of Sir Edward Elgar's Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma). Dan, a bulldog belonging to Dr. George Robertson Sinclair, Organist of the Cathedral, fell in the river during a walk with "G. R. S." and his friend, the composer.
