Addle Hill

Addle Hill or Athelyngstrete ran north from Knightrider Street up to Carter Lane (Stow 1633, sig. 2M4v). Stow records it running from Carter Lane to Knightrider Street but, as Carlin and Belcher note, it was extended south of Thames Street by 1250 (Stow 1633, sig. 2M4v; Carlin and Belcher Athelyngstrete). Stow may have recorded Addle Hill this way to distinguish between the raised and level portions of the street (Stow 1633, sig. 2M4v). It is labelled Addle Hill on the Agas Map. Carlin and Belcher’s 1520 map labels the street Athelyngstrete (Carlin and Belcher Athelyngstrete).
The southern portion of the street was destroyed to allow the formation of Queen Victoria Street in the nineteenth century (Harben). There is still an Addle Hill in London at the same location though it has been significantly reduced in length.
