The grand transformation trio of the 19th century, Richard Grainger, planner and entrepreneur, John Dobson, architect and surveyor, and John Clayton, lawyer and Town Clerk shaped much of the present city centre.
Clayton Street, always a popular thoroughfare, linked the Cattle Market, and latterly Marlborough Crescent Bus Station, and Blackett Street and Eldon Square, passing Westgate Road and Newgate Street on the way.
