Note

Nearby, Hyde Park Corner is a name given to the junction of Crown St, St Matthew's St and Westgate St.

On January 8th, 1297, a royal wedding took place at the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace (also known as Our Lady of Ipswich) between Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Edward I and the Count of Holland. Edward I stayed in the town for the ceremony with 'a splendid court'.The shrine was then located just outside the West Gate of the medieval town (hence Lady lane today). The shrine and the associated icon was possibly destroyed as part of the reformation in 1538. The icon was reputedly burned after first being conveyed to Thomas Cromwell in Chelsea along with others including items from Walsingham, Worcester and Bermondsey. The West Gate was pulled down in 1782. More details from here.
