Garlick Hill ran north from the Thames. Before it reached Cheapside, it became Bow Lane. The name Garlick Hill preserves a memory of the steep incline (now partially flattened) leading away from the river. Like Bread Street, Garlick Hill was built in the ninth century; it provided access from the haven of Queenhithe (just to the west of Garlick Hill) to the main market street of Cheapside.
That Garlick Hill was used to carry foodstuffs from the river to the food market is indicated by its name.
