(11) . Jewry Street, North end. In 1861 a considerable stretch of the wall on the East side of Jewry Street, immediately South of Aldgate was uncovered in the rebuilding of the premises of Messrs Moses. It lay immediately beneath the frontage of Jewry Street, and according to Loftus Brock, the foundations rested on massive piles. A drawing of this stretch of wall is preserved at the Society of Antiquaries, Red Portfolio, London, I, but contains obvious inaccuracies.

Some of this still remains, and is actually in the cellar of the original Three Tuns, at 36 Jewry street, The pub backs onto Vine street (previously called Little George street). See more about this here, and more detail about the pubs history
