  View of Lovat Lane, Monument, London, England   Around the Monument.

Lovat Lane starts in Eastcheap and runs downhill to join Lower Thames Street. Note how the sides of the cobbled surface slope towards the centre forming a central drainage channel. That is how all the roads at the time of the Great Fire were constructed and that is where all the sewage would have been thrown. Nice!

This is Pudding Lane where the Great Fire started and it looks nothing like it would have done back then. It probably looked more like Lovat Lane above.

This building at 33-35 Eastcheap was designed by Robert Louis Roumieu, a Victorian architect, as a Vinegar Warehouse and is one of the City of London's most original facades. It is Victorian Gothic taken to the extreme and is certainly worth a look.
