Little Bell Alley
   South from Leathersellers' Buildings to Copthall Buildings on the boundary of Broad Street and Coleman Street Wards (O.S. 1880).
   First mention: P.C. 1732.
   It seems to be shown but not named in O. and M. 1677, and the northern portion is called Angel Alley.
   But this street and the street called "Great Bell Alley" are called "Bell Alley" in Strype (ed. 1720) and probably in O. and M. too ; "Little Bell Alley" or "Back Alley" in Maitland, 1774, II. 839.
   Rebuilt 1890 and now called Copthall Avenue (q.v.).
   The name is commemorated in Bell House, Nos. 10 and 12 Copthall Avenue.
