In medieval 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 proclamation made, on the steps of St Nicholas Church, which had a grave yard at the front of the Church.

In the mid 19th century the building we know as Lloyd's Bank was St Nicholas Rectory, with the building next door being Stratford's Library and Stationers.
