Barking Church Yard

   North out of Great Tower Street, east of All Hallows Barking Church. In Tower Ward (P.O. Directory).
   Earliest mention: O.S. ed. 1848-51.
   Former names : " Barking Yard " (O. and M. 1677-P.C. 1732). " Barking Alley", (Rocque, 1746-Elmes, 1831).
   This designation was also given to the present Barking Alley, north of the church (Lockie, 1810-O.S. ed. 1848-51), and these names seem to have been used interchangeably at different periods.
