Using a mix of map resources particularly the Map Of London 1868, by Edward Weller1 and Charles Booth's maps2 it was discovered that the gardens at the rear of this row of buildings occupy what was once Wells Yard to about the end of Gower's Walk. At the time however Gower's Walk didn't continue down to Hooper St (Wells Yard) it in fact doglegged down to Wells Yard which then turned right and is now under what is Hooper Square. The original Hooper's Square was closer to Leman St.
