I really can’t say. These were on the Gosford Street side. From learning further they may have been for the textile production in earlier years. It was all brick walls and buildings to me. I do think that we lost a lot of history though, it wasn’t valued then.

The only alleyway that fits the criteria of tall windows with small panes of glass is the side alleyway running up the back of the BTH from Lower Ford St up to the lane where fireplaces were made. There was a brick wall all the way up adjacent to the BTH being the back garden to the shop on the other corner. Over the lane there was another alleyway that led up to All Saints Lane, walled back gardens to your right (from LFSt) and brick walls to the left. Cannot for the life of me remember any windows to fit the criteria in that alleyway. It always felt hemmed in in that one. Cheers

The fireplaces were made in Harnall Row which ran into Far Gosford Street.

As I wrote prior. My memory is pretty foggy and missing the finer details. I lived in Wren Street during the early 80's and did explore the area but it has all blended into one. Were streets also demolished during the construction of Sky Blue Way? It takes up a large area so it may have. I recently looked at Google street view and hardly recognised the place, so much has changed. It’s great to see many of the old buildings revamped and showing their history though. I remember an Indian restaurant called Monsoons near Harnall Lane and ate there many times, now there are huge faced multi-levelled buildings in its place. Progress hey!
