Junction of Travis Street and Nelson Street


Looking down Nelson Street coming from Market Street. Travis Street goes off to the left. Nelson Street continues to the right then takes a sharp left to join Ridling Lane. That dog-leg section carrying one-way traffic between Ridling Lane and Travis Street is marked on some street maps and GoogleMaps as a continuation of "Travis Street" despite the clear streetname signs.

I don't know for sure but would suspect that the gap now occupied by a secure garage or store room was originally a corner shop.

i lived at number 68 travis st as a child many years ago,as i remember Gerald, the space between the gable ends of the two houses was open & you could go around the back of those terraced houses.

Hi Gerald & all,the corner shop was on the opposite corner looking down Travis st & Mrs Hardys shop was half way down on the righthand side before you got to Union st. I used to live at a corner shop on Croft st& the corner of Albert rd. There are old & recent pictures of this on this site thanks to Gerald.
It was built in 1863 & through its years it was mainly an Off Licence but is now a house only.My parents Ian & Helen Barton were the last to own the building as an Off licence before they retired,i left 10 years ago and moved to British Columbia Canada.
