Little Tower Hill was a common northeast of the Tower of London, between East Smithfield and the Minories. According to Stow, it had become greatly diminished by building of tenements and garden plots by 1593, flanked to the north and west by certaine faire Almes houses, strongly builded of Bricke and timber, and couered with slate for the poore (Stow).
The Little in its name is a modern addition that distinguishes it from Tower Hill to the west, beyond Posterngate. In the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, Tower Hill and Little Tower Hill were known by the same name (Harben).
