Mill Alley (Coleman Street)

The location previously referred to as Mill Alley is now known as Great Bell Alley. Eilert Ekwall contends that the name Mill Alley simply comes from a nearby mill while Henry Harben contends that the location was named after Wm. Mills, who lived there in the 16th century (Harben 270). Former names include Bell Alley, Gough Alley, Goughes Alley, Myll Alley, and Myll Aley. In describing the location, Harben writes, Great Bell Alley extended from Coleman Street across Moorgate to Little Bell Alley and beyond to the eastern boundary of the ward (Harben 270).
