The Sugarloaf

The Sugarloaf is situated on Cannon Street which starts at St Paul's Cathedral and runs parallel with the River Thames for half a mile. Cannon Street was first known as 'Candlewrich Street' named after the candle makers who used to live in the area. In the 18th century the area of Three Cranes Wharf, Queen Street and Upper Thames Street was home to several sugar refineries, but they were demolished for the building of Southwark Bridge in 1819. Prior to this, the area had been producing sugar for over 100 years. The area is now occupied by the Thames Exchange building at 72 Upper Thames Street. The Sugarloaf was the traditional form in which refined sugar was produced and sold until the late 19th century, a tall cone with a rounded top from which lumps could be broken off with sugar nips.
