An interesting fact about Haydon Square is that if you found yourself in Mitre Square and wanted to exit the City ASAP, that's pretty much where you'd find yourself. Church Street/Minories, just below Aldgate High Street and quite close to Goulston Street.
Thanks for the info Gary

Excellent point Caz I’ll be interested to read the response.

I didn't think you were, Steve, but I have often wondered why, if Lechmere was the killer and was visiting his mother and daughter in Cable Street (I think that's right?) on the night of the double event, he came to be in Berner Street. That's not on an obvious route home to Doveton Street, nor was Berner Street itself an obvious place to look for prostitutes as far as I'm aware.

Once again i am forced to agree. Proximity should not be seen as explanation on its own for a possible trip to Berner Street , and certainly not for the proposed journey to Mitre Square.

That would mean he never went to his mum, or he is buying them after he leaves.
