Re. Barrow buildings. I lived near there and walked along it every day going to school in the 1950s.
It ran alongside the Congregational church and was parallel to Eastwood street and ran between (Old) Wakefield Rd and Victoria St. It was exactly opposite “The Avenue” at the Wakefield road end.
There was a row of terrace house on the side opposite the church (which had a side entrance opening into Barrow Buildings.)
These houses had a yard behind with outside toilets and wash houses. Because of the slope of the ground there were houses beneath the Barrow Buildings houses facing the opposite (yard) direction. (Common practice in the vicinity.) They were quite well built stone houses but in neglected state.
There were corridors with steps through the terrace to the yard behind, about two of them ISTR.
