The old town of Deal can be thought of as occupying the area between South Street and North Street, bordered by West Street and Beach Street, traversed from North to South by Middle Street and Lower Street (now, rather confusingly, called High Street) and from East to West by a large number of narrow streets, lanes and alleys.

South of the old town is Victoria Town; to the south-west, South Deal and Upper Deal; to the north, North Deal.

These pages show some of the lanes and passages that still survive around Middle Street between South Street and King Street, now mostly covered by the Middle Street car park.  Only small sections of most of the lanes still remain.
