Bleeding London – Black Swan Alley

Another day in the City and I have been trying to locate Black Swan Alley.  Despite looking at Google Maps, the A-Z and help from the City of London police and the Guildhall, I have been unable to locate it.  I am beginning to think it no longer exists.

 

Not one to be beaten, after another final search, I found The Hunt House (“a site for people who love maps, books, London and history”).  I contacted The Hunt House to see if they could help with the exact location of the alley.  Bruce Hunt confirmed that Black Swan Alley could be seen on maps up until the 1970’s.

 

I followed the directions but when I reached the alley it was all boarded up, and this is all remains of Black Swan Alley.

Bleeding London – City of London Images

For someone who isn’t great with directions, and is not much better with map reading, I am doing ok!

I have been helped by the City of London Police, the occasional taxi driver, numerous security and delivery men.  So a big thank you to all.
