Old Fish Street Hill
Old Fish Street Hill ran north-south between Old Fish Street and Thames Street. Stow refers to this street both as
old Fishstreete hill(2.4) and
Saint Mary Mounthaunt Lane(2.5). The latter name seems to come from
a very small church(2:4) of that name and
an auncient house and large roomes builded of stone and timber which sometime belonged to the Mounthauntes in Norfolke(2:4), both on that street. The Agas Map shows the church of St. Mary Somerset blocking the end of the street.
