   Formerly the City Pound, where stray or offending horses, cattle, and carriages whose drivers had committed any offence, were impounded under Act of Parliament, 1765 (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 92).
   Lord Mayor's stables and the Gresham Almshouses were here at one time, but were removed about 1883, and the site utilised for dwellings for married men in the City Police.

   "Three Leg Court" occupied the site in Rocque, 1746, the Green Yard at that time, and in O. and M. 1677, being on the east side of the Second Postern, Basinghall Postern.
