St Mary Magdalen Milk-street

"St. Mary Magdalen, Milk Street, was . . . destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and not rebuilt. The church stood on the east side of Milk Street, north of its end in Cheapside, in Cripplegate Ward Within (parts of the parish were also in Bread Street Ward). John Stow, in his Survey of 1603, described Milk Street as having many fair houses for wealthy merchants and others. He attributed the origin of street's name to it being a place where milk was sold. . . The parish was a Presbyterian stronghold in the years leading up to the Civil War. . . The church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and not rebuilt, Instead the parish was united to that of St Lawrence Jewry, and the site, together with that of the adjoining church of All Hallows Honey Lane and several houses, was acquired by the City, cleared, and laid out as a market-place, called Honey Lane Market."
