Notable history

Pride Hill has been here since medieval times, but has not always had this name. Historically, the neighbourhood was called Altus Vieus (High Town), and Pride Hill started as an informal name first recorded in 1378, reflecting the fact that the Pride family lived in the area. The Prides were influential merchants in the wool trade and were recorded as owning 47 plots in the town in 1279. Sections of the Medieval Town Walls lie under many of the buildings on Pride Hill, you can view the original walls within Pret a Manger, and from nearby Raven Meadows.
