Peachey Street runs off the bottom of Mansfield Road, just above the point where Milton Street ends. On its northern corner stands The Peacock Hotel. The street has quite a few other old buildings standing on its south side but I have no information on the history of these.
However, on the opposite corner to the Peacock Hotel once stood a large building that was erected in 1876 as The Exeter Hall. This then became the Regent Hall Baptist Church and then a cinema in 1913. It was demolished in 1958.
Maybe the buildings that are seen here had some association with the Exeter Hall ?
