In medival times here the life of the City concentrated. An ancient cross with heraldry stood opposite the Trinity Passage. Here war and peace was declared, and royal proclamations made. St. Nicholas Church had a grave yard in front. In the mid 19th century the furthest houses was St. Nicholas Rectory (now Lloyds Bank), and the nearest building was Stratford's Libary and stationers.
