The sewers were the avenues for everybody's movements, on a daily basis, Mike

Just checking the map here, it looks like if the Ripper had leapt the fence in any direction he would not have been on any street but in the midst of a large area- no doubt crowded with houses- north of Hanbury Street and bordered by Grey Eagle Street to the west and Brick Lane to the east. The intersection of Brick Lane and Woodseer Street was a block or so northeast of #29. Of course if he had vaulted the part of the fence right next to Annie's body he would have found himself in Albert Cadoche's back yard.

By the way, a rather obvious question occurred to me as I was perusing the posts here. If the residents of #29 kept finding undesirables in their back yard and corridor, why not invest in some locks? But then a possible answer occurred to me- too much trouble to get 17 copies made of the key?

The "large area" was actually the Truman brewery (or part thereof, ie "Beer stores no 18").

Directly at the back of #29, there was an industrial property (Drysalters premises), whereas the back fence of #27 (Cadosch's dwellings) backed onto Bayley's Yard and Bayley's packing case factory. Apparently a large number of packing cases were stored in the yard.

Bayley's yard was accessed through an archway at #23 Hanbury St.

Thanks for clarifying that, Jake. I had thought it was a mostly residential area.
