City of London Footways :: Shared Description

This is a collection of various passages, courts, alleys, paths, pedestrian tunnels and pavements in the City of London. Many of these date from the medieval street plan and have survived the redevelopment of recent years, some of which travel under buildings.

The term "footway" is used in fairly wide sense to describe any path or track for pedestrians, where motor vehicles are not normally allowed.

A very helpful reference is Ivor Hoole's "A guide to the alleys, courts, passages and yards of Central London" which has been archived here: Archive LinkExternal link
