Redmayne & Todd Sports Shop 

Canal Street / Carrington Street

This beautiful block of Victorian shops will  be remembered by many as the Redmayne & Todd Sports shop that occupied the main corner section for may years. Before the advent of large out of town sports outlets, this company was THE sports retailer in the city.

I believe that they still survive and now trade from premises in the nearby Broad Marsh shopping centre.  

It is to be hoped that this fine block of old shops will be retained in the planned redevelopment of this area.

The block was designed by Gilbert Smith Doughty and built 1896 -1898
