At one time, the only way of getting from Wheelgate to the Market Place was by using Studley Lane at the top of which was a short passage leading into the Market Place. In 1857, or shortly before, a lot of old cottages in Studley Lane were pulled down to open out the site for the National School. St. Michael Street was formed out of the old lane 'and the improvements begun which culminated only recently in the reconstruction of the premises now occupied by Messrs. Read, the city clothiers.'
