Honey Lane Market
   On the east side of Milk Street, at the north end of Honey Lane (P.O. Directory). In Cripplegate Ward Within and Cheap Ward.
   First mention: O. and M. 1677.
   "Milk Street" or "Honey Lane Market."
   Strype says that Honey Lane and other buildings were converted into a market after the Fire 1666, and that the area covered by the market was spacious, being 193 ft. long and 97 ft. broad, with a large square Market House in the centre, and stalls for butchers, etc. It had a passage into St. Lawrence Lane (ed. 1720, I. iii. 50).
   The market was removed in 1835 and the City of London School erected on the site. This, in its turn, was removed to the Embankment, and the site is now converted into a street, occupied by offices and warehouses, but retaining the old name of Honey Lane Market.
   The churches of All Hallows and St. Mary Magdalene, Milk Street, formerly occupied the site of the market.
