London, Liberty of Norton Folgate , coffee bar

At the edge of the City of London, just before Shoreditch, Bishopsgate runs out and becomes ‘Norton Folgate’. Despite being a major artery into the City, it’s obscure. So obscure that we’re yet to meet a single cabbie that knows where it is. In fairness, the present day Norton Folgate runs for just one block. However, up until 1855 Norton Folgate was a self-governing entity on the edge of the City of London than spanned half a dozen blocks. These self-governing units had legal status and were called ‘Liberties‘. This was the Liberty of Norton Folgate.

To honour the Liberty of Norton Folgate, the band Madness composed a song about it, called (no surprise) The Liberty of Norton Folgate!
