Here is some information on Peel Gardens - I hope it is sufficient:
PEEL GARDENS: Accessed via Cockcrow Street, via St. Oswald's Road.
Built in or before 1901. Demolished 1970s.
The path inside the present single access gate at St. Oswald School - which runs northwards (towards the railway) - replaced Cockcrow Street; walking along this street, you would have come to two streets on your west: Peel Gardens, then Peel Terrace (which backed onto the railway lines).
Named after: Sir Robert Peel, 2nd Baronet (5 February 1788-2 July 1850) was a British statesman and member of the Conservative Party, who twice served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1834-1835 and 1841-1846) and twice served as Home Secretary (1822-1827 and 1828-1830). He is regarded as the father of the modern British police and as one of the founders of the modern Conservative Party.
