Whiplash Injury in Shoreditch


Shoreditch is now part of Inner London, in the historic district of the East End. It seems that the name originated in Saxon times and means ‘Sewer ditch,’ although there is some dispute over this. In the 12th century an Augustinian nunnery was founded in Shoreditch and was the richest on of its kind in the country. In Shakespeare’s time there were two theatres in Shoreditch, one built by James Burbage on the site of the former nunnery. Shakespeare, as an actor, went to Shoreditch and may have lived in Holywell Street.

In 1902 Charles Booth wrote of Shoreditch:

“The character of the whole locality is working-class. Poverty is everywhere, with a considerable admixture of the very poor and vicious … Large numbers have been and are still being displaced by the encroachment of warehouses and factories … Hoxton is known for its costers and Curtain criminals, for its furniture trade … No servants are kept except in the main Road shopping streets and in a few remaining middle class squares in the west.”

Nowadays, of course the area has changed character with Brick Lane market being a crowd-puller.
