Freeth St was accessed from Jordan Well just up from the Gaumont and the Acorn pub which stood on the corner of Cox St and Jordan Well. Licence was transferred to the Acorn at Ringwood Highway, which is now shut and I believe demolished. Once in Freeth St you turned left and right where the ice store was. My uncle Ken French ran the ice store which was probably connected to the ice and salt store in French’s Yard, Godiva St. This was run by my grandfather Eli French. I think after the war you could exit into New St but I recall it as bomb damaged derelict area. Ken French also had butchers shops in East St and Allesley Old Rd.

There are some excellent views of that area in Britain From Above and photos from mostly after the war at Historic England. There were quite a lot of buildings that survived the War. From Jordan Well, Freeth Steeet ran north to a tee junction where you could head east onto Cox Street or West and then North onto New Street. There is a picture of the building on New Street from under which Freeth Street emerged.
