Where are/were the Chartist's meeting rooms?

This is Figtree Lane in Sheffield near the Cathedral. The large building was the Lying in Hospital for Women, the forerunner of Jessop Hospital. It is mentioned in the history books as being where the Chartists had their meeting room.

It is said they met at the Figtree tavern, proprietor Hardwick and then it was taken over by Joseph Knapton in 1847.

However as yet I have no street number for the Tavern so don't know if the building remains or was knocked down.
