The new Bullring in Birmingham boasts more than 140 shops and kiosks - including an iconic Selfridges store.

Other old names to reappear will be 'Jamaica Row' and 'Spiceal Street', which first appeared on plans from 1795.

Jamaica Row is believed to have derived from a pub called the Black Boy after King Charles II, who was dark-skinned. It will now be used for a new pedestrian route between the new St Martin's Market and the Open Market.

Spiceal Street was a later variant of Mercer St, the street of the city's cloth merchants. It will return as the name for the pedestrian route around 'St Martin's Square', the proposed new name for the repaved area to the north-east of St Martin's Church.

The central street within the development running from the junction of New Street and High Street will be called 'St Martin's Walk'.

The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, John Alden, said: "This is a great opportunity to celebrate the city's varied culture, the involvement of local people and the significance of this day as another piece in the jigsaw of the renaissance of Birmingham."
