A ancient winding path down a slope lined with cobbles in the City with a "famous wren church" in the middle, what's not to love about Lovat Lane?
A fairly steep little passageway that's wide enough to be a road, was originally an extension of Saffron Hill to the south.
One of the joys of London are the alleys with wonderful names, and this is perfect example of one that can be found near Clerkenwell.
A sanitized road that was once much less posh and an awful lot longer.
When all around Clerkenwell was fields and churches, a path ran through the cornflowers. Today where all is built up, that ancient path still carves a narrow path through the buildings. This is Passing Alley, although it no longer exactly…
This is the story of an alley called Bull Inn Court which is today most famous for containing a pub, which is not called the Bull Inn.
This might not look like much, but this little place and set of steps are rich in history, and deep in subsidence.
A covered alley that runs underneath the Old Bailey court rooms with a concealed entrance for the public to go inside, this is Warwick Passage.
A narrow alley that provides a convenient link between two parallel roads, and which as far as I can tell, has never been used by St Augustine.
If this alley sounds vaguely Chinese, then it's no surprise as it's part of the old Limehouse Chinatown before Chinatown migrated to Soho.
