Located between Horsepool and the Fleet River, the Elms, as John Stow notes, was a place of execution named after the once flourishing number of elm trees on site. Stow refers to the area as Le elmes or le two elmys (Stow 382). By Stow’s lifetime the expansion of London meant the namesake trees had been cut down.
