Here's how it appears on the 1848 OS map.
(Liverpool Sheet 30. Reprint by Alan Godfrey.)
Note the spelling.

I think Walnut Street (shown on Philip's map above) still survives as a 'street' of sorts within the university of Liverpool campus. I'm less sure about Chestnut Street. I think it might have been built on in more recent times by the university?

...before the uni extended the baths a few years ago,the section to Mulberry St also remained.

I lived in number 5 Chesnut Street up until it was demolished to make way for car parking for the Uni
