Long Southwark

Long Southwark ran southwards from London Bridge to St. George Southwark, where it attached to Blackman Street (Stow 1633, sig. 2Q2r). The street is labelled Southwarke on the Agas map. Stow notes that Long Southwark was builded on both sides with divers Lanes and Allies (Stow 1633, sig. 2Q2r). The five prisons found in Southwark were also located on this street (Stow 1633, sig. 2Q2v). Long Southwark formed the northern portion of the main thoroughfare in Southwark, which is now commonly referred to as the High Steet or Borough High Street (Malden).
