Up the junction: dragon migrates north to guard new border of expanded City

THE DRAGON that marks the limits of the City of London at the junction of Aldersgate Street and Fann Street was moved 120 yards north yesterday, the result of the Local Government Boundary Commission Review, writes Simon Pincombe. The first boundary changes to the City for centuries came into effect on 1 April and resulted in 1,300 new residents for the City, an increase in size from 740 to 779 acres, and the addition of numerous businesses and properties, including the Chiswell Street Brewery and the Broadgate development. The dragon now stands on the junction of Goswell Road and Baltic Street.
