Lime Street

"it is worthy a remark that, though the ward includes parts of several parishes, there is not even a whole street in it" John Noorthhouck (1773)

Map of Lime Stret Ward - 1750 from Old and New London 1860's

Lime Street Ward is a very small ward. It probably takes its name from the production of lime in the vicinity during mediaeval times.

It is bounded to the north by Camomile Street, the boundary with Bishopsgate Ward , to the east by St Mary Axe, the boundary with Aldgate Ward.

Our Southern and Eastern Boundaries are more complicated. Our Boundary includes Lime St but then cuts back up through part of Leadenhall Market, into Gracechurch Street and north up to Camomile St.

Following a  Boundary Review, for the 2013 Common Council Elections our Boundary has changed, we lost the southern part of leadenhall market to Langbourne Ward. A senior City figure who is closely connected to Langbourn and Langbourn Ward Club and did observe "We still have not got The Lamb into our Ward".

We are hoping to include a revised boundary map shortly.

Cornhill Ward

Cornhill Ward is named after one of the three ancient hills of the City of London – the other two being Tower Hill and Ludgate Hill. The Ward is almost shaped like a pointed boot. The northern boundary being Wormwood Street. The western boundary runs down Old Broad Street into Threadneedle Street where it meets Cornhill which creates its southern side. A short detour into Birchin Lane cutting round the back of both St Peter’s and St Michael’s brings one into Bishopsgate (the Eastern Boundary).
