The history of Mount Pleasant
Mount Pleasant has a unique and colourful past. The surrounding area used to be known as Coldbath Fields, after the cold baths established on the site in 1697 to cure nervous disorders like convulsions and rheumatism.
Before it became known as Mount Pleasant, the street was a country track leading down to the Fleet River.
In the 1730s locals began using the street as a laystall – a site for dumping waste, cinders and other refuse. The vast, malodourous mound that resulted led to the ironic name Mount Pleasant.
Coldbath Fields was famously home to the Middlesex House of Correction, which opened in 1794 and soon became notorious for its brutal regime. Accommodating 1,800 inmates, it was the largest prison in Britain at the time.
In the late 1880s the prison was demolished and the site redeveloped by the Post Office as a parcel sorting office.
The Post Office’s operations gradually extended – at one time it was the largest sorting office in Europe. The Mount Pleasant Mail Centre, as it’s now known, is still in operation today.
