Breezer’s Hill is a short, narrow hill running between The Highway
(formerly Ratcliffe Highway and St. George Street
) and Pennington Street
Its west side was lined with the wool warehouses of Gooch & Cousens and on the east side were a number of small dwellings, numbered 1 to 5. Two pubs were situated on the street; ’The White Bear’ on the north east corner at 1 St. George Street
and on the ’Red Lion’ on the south east corner at 60 Pennington Street
Breezer’s Hill still exists and has warehouses on both sides.
