St Michaels Works, The Black Barn
March 2001 images
Demolished at the turn of the century (the beginning of
these somewhat rickety buildings at the top of Bond Street, opposite
side of County Hall carried the two sets
of lettering shown:
'The BLACK BARN'
The photograph below shows (from
left to right): The Black Barn, St Michaels Works and the rear wall of
the Church Hall of St Michael.
The rear of the Church of St Michael
(which fronts Upper Brook
Street), later destroyed by fire, and its Church Hall are
in the background of the photograph below.

The site in Bond Street, by 2004 cleared and converted
to – you guessed it –
a car park.
If we'd been building this site twenty or more years ago, we could have
included the long-abandoned The Mitre pub a few yards up on the corner
St Helens Street (now occupied by
Mitre House), an unpreposessing
which bore its name on the wall until demolition around 1980.
