Aldermanbury Conduit
   In the middle of Aldermanbury near St. Mary Aldermanbury Church. Commenced by Sir William Eastfield, Mayor, and by a codicil to his will dated 1445 he directed that it should be completed at his expense (Ct. H.W. II. 510).
   Stow tells us that it was finished by his executors in 1471, and that he had directed that water should be brought from Tyburn for the supply of the Conduit (S. 17, 18, 294, 526).
   Strype describes it as built tower-wise (ed. 1720, I. iii. 90). Burnt in the Fire and rebuilt. Taken down in the 18th century.
