  • I don’t know if it would help but, I was born in Horsemarket Gardens 1941 .The description you have of a lane,that lane leads to Horsemarket gardens.
    A guy named Alan Clarke had a photo of it.
    On the east side you had Katheriness st then King st.
    then the land as you call it, looking at lane,left hand side was the chapel and on the right a meeting house.
