The Trenches are the main commerical area of Bully Harbour, between the bustling and orderly road from the Imperial Docks to the  Market , and the hectic road from the Local Docks to the Market. It is prime estate, near many Ministry buildings, and has a great deal of traffic. Here, you can find shops of all shapes and sizes, repairs and supplies usually closer to the coast, and general stores closer to the market. Eateries abound here too, most notably the hole-in-the-wall establishment known as the Bowen Arrow.

It is called the Trenches because many of the buildings were built with more than one story, an oddity in Bully Harbour, and walking along its narrow streets gives the impression of walking along a deep trench.
