Can't help, but if you're searching, look for Halkyn St. This is the older spelling.

1950s map
Didn't know it as a street then.It was more of a track.
There was a boxing gym there where the McAteers used to train.
Not sure if I ever saw the car park open except maybe once a year when Hardings? put a rail track and miniature train in there.Can anyone confirm this?

I can remember that the car park was an emergency water supply pool during the war period, it was fenced off with chain-link, we used to pass it each time we went to the Queens Cinema.

Hi Guys,
Can I be cheeky and ask you were you get these street maps from? I have often wanted to know of places that no long exist, knocked down for rebuilding and whole streets missing.
I do a lot of genealogy and Im always seeking information like this.
Many thank for reading this.
