Ludgate Street

According to Harben, Ludgate Street ran east-west from St. Paul’s Churchyard to about Old Bailey, though, the actual street probably stretched further west to the point where Ludgate Street became Fleet Street (Harben). It is often used synonymously with Ludgate Hill but MoEML understands Ludgate Hill to have been, rather, the raised portion of the larger Ludgate Street. A section of Ludgate Street was also called Bowyer Row, [so called] of Bowiers dwelling there in old time (Stow 1598, sig. T1v).
The surviving portion of Ludgate Street is labelled Ludgate Hill on Google’s modern map of London (Google Inc.).
