Colonnade, New Road
Colonnade, New Road
Head east down Market Street, then west up North Street from the junction with East Street then look north from the junction with New Road. The road was new in 1805 when the Prince Regent paid for an alternative roadway to East Street which then headed out of town past the front door of the Pavilion. The Colonnade was added in 1806-07 to give a covered walkway to the Theatre Royal which itself opened in 1807. Parts of the Colonnade in North Street was lost when that road was widened in 1912, 1922 and again in 1929 meaning that the only section left is the one on view. The Theatre Royal can be seen in the middle of the picture whilst the Dome Theatre can be seen top right.
