Farringdon Within Ward

Primary tabs

"FARRINGDON WITHIN. This other extensive civic ward, derives its name from the same origin as the last, and lies entirely, as its name imports, within the ancient walls of the City. This ward immediately adjoins that of Farringdon Without, and is bounded on the north, by the wards of Aldersgate and Cripplegate, and the liberty of St. Martin's-le-Grand; on the west, by its sister ward of Farringdon Without; on the south, by the ward of Castle Baynard and the river Thames; and on the east, by the wards of Castle Baynard and Cheap. . . . Its most remarkable buildings are St. Paul's Cathedral, Christ's Hospital, the building formerly used by the College of Physicians, the Halls of the Apothecaries', Stationers', Sadlers' and Embroiderers' Companies, St. Paul's School, the 'Times' Printing-office and establishment." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Gareth Hicks]
