This LinkExternal link states:
"Tucked away opposite the side entrance to the church, alongside the Crown Inn, is one of Cirencester's oldest streets, Black Jack Street. It apparently takes its name from the statue of St John the Baptist which used to stand below the church facing down Black Jack Street, the statue became blackened with local metal forging ctivities and the street thus became known by the statue, "Black Jack". Sadly the statue is long since gone, and the street now enjoys far cleaner air!"
