Description

A mapp of the parishes of St. Clements Danes, St. Mary Savoy; with the Rolls Liberty and Lincolns Inn, taken from the last survey with corrections and additions (1720); From the Crace Collection of Maps of London at the British Library; Board of the British Library. (Annotated by Iain Laird.)

St Clement Danes (see map) was a civil parish in the metropolitan area of London, England; an ecclesiastical version remains (see its Anglican church, St Clement Danes). The parish was split between the Liberty of Westminster and the Liberty of the Duchy of Lancaster (also known as of the Savoy). The area is colloquially split  between Aldwych and Adelphi areas associated with the larger Strand area in the extreme east of the City of Westminster. It includes hotels, restaurants, the Indian and Australian High Commissions and the London School of Economics. To its west is Charing Cross station which faces Trafalgar Square. It took its name from the dedication of the church of St Clement Danes. It is recorded in the early 12th century as parochia Sancti Clementis ecclesie Dacorum or ‘the parish of St Clement’s church of the Danes’. The name suggests there were Danes living in the area, to the west of the City of London. The parish consisted of two areas extending into the left (north) half of the Thames.  The main part formed the east part of Westminster vill which was largely gardens and rural until the late medieval period. It adjoined the Liberty of the Rolls and the Temple area of the City of London. To the west it had a straight boundary with two parishes of contrasting size: St Martin in the Fields (large) and St Mary le Strand (very small). To the north it was bounded by St Giles in the Fields. The western detached part was very small; it lay between an arm of St Martin in the Fields by the river and the few-acres Precinct of the Savoy of similar size to St Mary le Strand also by the river.
