Most people have heard of Ilchester Square, but how many people remember St Andrew's Square?



These flats were a similar design to Ilchester Square, but the arch was more pointed. They were located between Conway Street and Claughton Road



The flats were demolished in 1972 to make way for an Asda store (the one with the car park on the roof) which was in turn demolished. The site was pretty much where Europa Square is now.

The 1910 map shows a chapel just about where the bus station is now, this may have had a churchyard associated with it.

The little church along side where St andrews flats where had a small school next to it, NO Grave Yard. If you had walked down Grange road in the early 1950s you would have seen a church on the corner of Horatio Street oposite Pykes the jewlers and it had a few graves at the front and the same goes for the church on the other side of grange road at the top of Catherine Street, that also had a few graves at the entrance to the church. St Johns church was slap bang in the middle of where the pyramids is and that had No Graves. Think about why they built Flaybrick {it was so the town centre was not full of grave yards} the only other churches with grave yards attached in the town where St Mary's and St Werburgh's.

I believe that St Andrews did have a graveyard, and the records can be checked at Landican. It was a Scottish church. Needs to be checked though.
The triangle also had a Pub at the opposite end to the flats. A family friend lived there till the demolition. I can remember going in them. I think alot of people moved from flats to Queensbury Gardens (flats).
