  • Reason for inclusion: Designated by Thomas Wheeler as the Coburg branch of The City and Suburban Bank which James Clay was intending to rob by digging a tunnel from Wilson’s pawnbroking shop in Coburn Square into the bank’s vaults.

    Accessibility: Visible from the outside but open to the public during normal banking hours.

    Description: Aldersgate was described by Watson as “one of the main arteries that convey the traffic of the city to North and West” . This is still true today

    Comment: Watson neatly modified the name of the bank to The City and Suburban Bank but not the purpose of the building. In 1890 this was the London and County bank
