    A lot of people are puzzled by how steep those steps are, because as you say, the slope was only a gradual incline.
    I don't know where that big drop came from !

    You can see the gradual incline (and indeed I remember walking it enough times) here, on these great pics.

    Cheers for all this info. I'm doing a book that's out later in the year. Your help has been invaluable.

    Very fine, Joe. Make sure you post this in the Liver Bird thread too if you have not already done so.

    Hello steve!

    I think you will find on your picture that the steps are located just by the green shrub half way down. The origional road sloped from the foreground of your picture, right down into Church Street.

    Smile st johns market

    Hi i worked in old st johns market it was a heck of a job walking up Charlotte st with two sides of bacon or 112 lb cask of butter on your shoulders from the bottom to elliot st entrance but the laughs in that place especially at xmas when all the Fagans were out swiping the geese and turkeys off the stalls (after getting the kids to cause havoc) what a place what people, what a laugh, there will never be another like it, jim black .
