1 A pair of tramlines were revealed below the tarmac on Jury Street. At the junction of Coventry Road, St Johns and Coten End a single tram rail was found down the centre of the Road with a rebate on the outer, northern edge. At the western end of St Johns there were a pair of standard guage tramlines, 1.42m apart, directly below the tarmac. Here the rebates on the tram rails lay in the outer third of each track. The single rail alignment is different to that at St Johns and it seems that it may be part of a tram loop that can be seen on early C20 OS maps, allowing trams to pass on their way up and down Smith Street.
