"Connecting Smithfield Market and Farringdon Station, aptly named Cowcross Street was used as a route to take cows to market."

The majesty of St Paul's Cathedral's architecture and the historical significance is amazing...

Finsbury Judo Club

insbury Leisure Centre
Having coached Judo to Juniors over the past 30 years. I have found that there are very different approaches to how we can get the message from Professor Kano across to our young Judoka. Kano's view of Judo was quite clear. It was to be a good source of fitness, fun and discipline, rolled into a sport which could be enjoyed safely for all ages. With it roots in Ju-Jit-Su or ( Ju-Jut-Su) as a fighting Art, we find an easy cross over into Kano's Judo. Website

About Farringdon

Farringdon is a historic area of the City of London. Farringdon is also used informally to refer to the area around Farringdon station in the London Borough of Islington, some distance north of the historic locality, the extent of which cannot be exactly defined; this contemporary usage is most likely a back-formation and its use is similar to that in the Victoria area. The station and its immediate environs are located at the southernmost tip of Clerkenwell in the London Borough of Islington very close to the northern boundary of the City of London and the eastern boundary of the London Borough of Camden. Farringdon station and its environs were previously within the Metropolitan Borough of Finsbury and are now within the London Borough of Islington.
