I know where it is, I don't know what they're building.

Smile It's what was called Priory Fields. The row of houses at the back left is New Street and the row of trees bounded what was the Prior's Orchard, later turned into a graveyard. You can just see a gravestone I think on the left. The buildings in front of Holy Trinity are on the east side of Priory Street. Looking at one of the later maps it's the Cope Street, Dale Street area. In the aerial photos I could see that they built a big retaining wall at the back of the new gardens to keep the cemetery from falling down the slope. It's now part of the university.

Thanks Helen - I knew it was that area from the spires but couldn't work out what they were doing or what was there previously. Edited by member, 7th Jun 2017 10:21 am
