Bird in Hand Entry, Heyrod Street. (c) Google 2010. View Larger Map.
The walkway which connects Heyrod Street to Travis Street just east of Piccadilly Station is or was known as Bird in Hand Entry. It's named after the beerhouse that used to stand at the Heyrod Street corner, as seen above where the small factory is now sited. The Bird in Hand closed in 1898  but its name lives on, albeit in this forgotten part of town.
