On the left hand side (Baths) of where OLR was is now called Lime Court. It's a residential place for elderly people (Sheltered Dwellings) On the right hand side you still have Carrick Hill. (New houses)  Further up where Upper Townsend Street was there is a dual carriage way
called West Link. It connects the motorways and then you have the Lower Shankill Estate.
that got me mixed up when I went back,Townsend Street being made part of the motorway, it was a big change :-* :-*

Kate-o Townsend Street is actually still there.  The West Link runs parallel to it on the city centre side.  There are a number of small workshops or Enterprise Park as it is known.  Houses have an address as Upper Townsend Street across on the other side of Peter's Hill.
West link is below ground level, with walls on either side.  It goes under Clifton Street at the Orange Hall, Peter's Hill and Divis Street.

Does anyone remember the wee hall half way down Bristol Street on the corner (where you could exit into Fortingale and Perth Streets) and every Sunday they would have services?  My sister lived in Bristol Street and I remember going to the hall a few times. Thats where I learned to sing " Jesus bids us shine with a clear pure light"   Dont know what denomination it was? Only about 60 years ago mind you!
