4 & 20 Lowther Street  - up market side of the road.
53 lowther Street - not sure I think itís next to a pub, but when I was younger it was a garage ( thatís providing the numbers havenít changed much.
Victoria Place - posh town house
Union Street, Charles Street and Lindisfarne Street - Streets with small terraced houses.  All three still there but Lindisfarne Street not changed much but the other two have. Some of the houses knocked down in 1960s and replaced. Union Street is now Rydal Street.

These days, Botchergate is somewhere you don't want to be on a Saturday night.
Or quite a few other nights, but especially Friday and Saturday when they close the road gates!😳 🙈
