Now part of the A11 it was anciently part of the Roman road from London to Colchester. It was situated outside the perimeter of London Wall, east of Aldgate and was the location of many coaching inns for the receipt of travellers going to or from London[1]

At its western end is the Whitechapel Art Gallery and Altab Ali Park; nearby Osborn Street, the southern extension of Brick Lane, enters the street.
