Do buses really go down Hill St today? I'm amazed Neil but thanks for the photos.

Hi Prof, Wave Sadly, no longer. The intervention of the ring-road put an end to that.

Thanks, Philip. I did think that Holyhead Road would be in the same category. Only upper reaches of both streets.

This great image from a 1914 newspaper has just surfaced on FB. I had not seen quite that angle before from that period and did not realise how narrow it was.

Hill Street 1823 I think that the building on the right is the small chapel, dedicated to St Lawrence and St Mary that preceded St Osburg's Church. The full painting shows a dirt area in front of the church. I do know that some of this was absorbed into the roadway, thus widening and straightening it. Though I think that the old chapel may have been further back from the road than the modern church. Here it is shown on the 1807 map. The chapel doesn't appear on the 1749 map. There was a fair bit of land around this chapel. It was this building that might have catholic burials in 1826. Request about St Osburg graves in 1826 by Tony1
