Dunning's Alley
   West out of Bishopsgate Street Without, at No. 151. In Bishopsgate Ward Without (O. and M. 1677-O.S. 1880).
   First mention: On tradesman's token of 1668 (Burn, 63).
   In the 18th century the alley extended further west than in the O.S. maps of the 19th century, and it seems to have been partly demolished for the erection of Broad Street Station, etc.
   Said to be named after the ground landlord who built it (N. and Q. 2nd S. III. 143, 1911).
   The rest of the site is now occupied by Liverpool Street Station and the railway lines.
