Bank End

Bank End was a small neighbourhood at the eastern end of Bankside, not far from the Clink. Its principal building was the Castle (also known as the Castle upon the Hope), an inn and brothel accessible from the river by a wharf. Roberts and Godfrey give a brief history of the property transfers in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries (Roberts and Godfrey 57-65, para. 18) and include an image of the tradesman’s token of Anthony Craven at the Castle (obverse) at Bank End in Southwark (reverse). The name is memorialized in the modern street named Bank End, which runs north from modern Park Street to the footpath along the river.
