Description

Aldgate ward with its divisions into precincts & parishes according to a new survey (1756) Courtesy of The Crace Collection of Maps of London at The British Library 1756 by Benjamin Cole

Aldgate was a gate in the former defensive wall around the City of London. (See map – click to expand).It gives its name to Aldgate High Street, the first stretch of the A11 road, which included the site of the former gate.  The area of Aldgate, the most common use of the term, is focused around the former gate and the High Street and includes part of the city and parts of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  It is 2.3 miles (3.7 km) east of Charing Cross.  There is also an Aldgate Ward of the City of London. The Ward is of ancient origin, but intramural, so almost entirely distinct from the area around Aldgate High Street, which is mostly outside the line of the London Wall.
