Lansdowne Passage leading to Berkeley Street - this was notorious as a perfect getaway for robbers and highwaymen. They put in place iron bars to stop them riding through.

See also - The wide passageway, now lined with shops and restaurants and known as Lansdowne Row, was once a narrow alley with high walls on either side, separating the grounds of Lansdowne House from those of Devonshire House. It was owned by Lord Lansdowne but open to the public. Once a year he had the doors at each end locked so as to prevent it becoming a legal right of way.
