On site of former St Thomas's church there now stands a peace garden. Bordered by Granville Street, Bath Row, Ridley Street and Washington Street.

The Church, which had been refitted in 1893, was largely destroyed by enemy action in 1940, but the tower and the west porticos are still (1961) standing. http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/WARWICK/2000-03/0952294736

Former Queen's Hospital, Bath Row
The Queen's Hospital opened in 1841 as one of the first British institutions opened specifically as a teaching hospital. Its early years were blighted by the narrowness of its Church of England principles, but it flourished after it was refounded in 1867; see the site of the Birmingham University Medical School, which traces its origins to this institution https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/medical-school/about/history.aspx . The east block was built around 1841 to designs by Bateman and Devey in the Regency style. The west block, a building in an Italianate style by J H Chamberlain, was added in 1873. Both are now listed buildings; descriptions can be found on the Historic England site https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1219917?section=official-list-entry https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1075749?section=official-list-entry . From 1941 to 1993 the buildings were used as an accident hospital. They have since been converted into flats.
