Having crossed over Newtown Row we are now on the only part of New John Street officially known as New John Street and not New John Street West. I haven't used the full name up to now because in all my life I have never heard anybody use the "West" addition.


So we are on the final section of New John Street leading to Aston Road, on reaching this road we have a left turn and then a right turn onto Dartmouth Street

Passing the junction of Heneage Street and then at Ashted Row and Holbrook's Sauce factory on the corner, the second image is when it was a bombed out shell and is more the way I remember it.

Crossing over Ashted Row we head down Lawley Street to the White Towers public house at Vauxhall Road with what looks like bombing repaired shops on the other corner. We then pass under Vauxhall Viaduct with Viaduct Street running along the side of it.

We are now standing at the junction of Garrison Street looking back up Lawley Street, next we are at the Garrison Lane junction with the public toilets and the horse trough on one side and the Sailors Return pib on the other.

We have now turned into Watery Lane, a little way up at the junction of Little Barr Street we find the High Stool Cafe, then we are looking back down the row of Georgian houses opposite. Next after passing the Crown & Anchor pub we are standing at Keeley Street looking back.

We continue up Watery Lane Until we reach the Barrel public house on the corner of Kingston Street where we turn right into Adderley Street. A little way along this street we stop to look back toward Waterey Lane, noting on the other corner of New Bond Street the old Gar Work premises that once also was the local coke yard.
