People... Hi"again,... Shut Lane, was, I think, ( by looking at todays google map, ) between Park St and Allison St, and slap bang next to Moor St Station, there is now a large carpark there, but I'm sure thats where it used tobe, being as Shut Lane was leading down to a viaduct, I think it was going down to Park St, could any one confirm this, , but need to see an old map to make sure....thanks for any help you can offer....J2..

Sorry John

I had not got round to reading this post yet, I hope this map helps. Its an early one and it shows Shut Lane running from Park St to Moor St,

Just checked your map Phil,
 Corner of Albert St.RAF Recruiting Offices,interview May 1946.Trams still ran.
Union Passage, I remember   The Copper Kettle  a lovely teashop.
Where the map says High St  I always thought of that as Bull St or was
that higher up? Was,nt the big Co-oP there..1988 had a meal at a
place named the (I think)   Union Jack Cafe beautiful fryup which was
then newish,is it still there, what abouts Boots opp the Odeon,
its amazing what a map does for your memory eh?
