A tree-lined lane called Battery Path runs uphill parallel to Queen's Road Central behind the HSBC building. The British built it when they arrived in 1841 to move their cannons uphill—hence the name. At the top of Battery Path sits the Former French Mission Building, an elegant redbrick building with white columns and green shutters on the windows. Finished in 1917, the government declared monument is now home to the Court of Final Appeal.
