(Name to)

Albion Place

 

Mentioned in the 1841 census.

The Place was said to be named after the pub and the Place itself was described as a court, off Chapel Place. It is said the pub later became the "Carpenter's Arms". At this stage I am not sure whether this was the same one as the "Carpenter's Arms" that eventually became the "Cause is Altered" in the same area, as the dates do not seem to line up conveniently. The whole area had been designated for slum clearance in 1937 and that year, much of the property was empty and ready for demolition. The war that followed, and the subsequent housing shortage extended their life however by another thirty years.
