The city ditch was part of the old medieval defence system. The ditch for the east section of the city wall, west of the Minories, ran south from Aldgate to Posterngate.
The city ditch west of the Minories is not featured on the Agas map, but Stow explains why: the ditch had recently been inclosed, and the banks thereof let out for Garden plots, Carpenters yardes, Bowling Allies, and diuerse houses thereon builded (Stow). On the Agas map, these gardens are visible on the west side of the Minories.
