The Old Clock House, London
150 St John Street, Clerkenwell, London
Live in a restored brewery in the heart of old London! Cannon Street is a road in the City of London, the historic nucleus of London and its modern financial centre. It runs roughly parallel with the River Thames, about 250 metres (820 ft) north of it, in the south of the City.
It is the site of the ancient London Stone and gave its name to Cannon Street station, a mainline railway terminus and connected London Underground station. In the west, Cannon Street starts at St. Paul’s Churchyard outside St Paul’s Cathedral; running east it meets Queen Victoria Street near Mansion House tube station, passing Cannon Street station, and finally meets King William Street and Gracechurch Street near Monument tube station.
In the late 19th century Cannon Street was occupied by large wholesale warehouses, especially of cotton goods and other fabrics. The London Stone, from which it has been suggested distances were measured in Roman times, was originally situated in the middle of Cannon Street. It was later set into the wall of St. Swithin’s Church, and now rests in a case to the side of the street.
Description: “A wonderful example of mid 19th Century architecture, restored with enormous affection, taste and attention to detail.
