Mitre Square is a small square in the City of London. It measures about 77 feet (23 m) by 80 feet (24 m) and is connected via three passages with Mitre Street to the SW, to Creechurch Place to the NW and, via St James’s Passage (formerly Church Passage), to Duke’s Place to the NE.
The south corner of the square was the site of the murder of Catherine Eddowes by “Jack the Ripper”. Her mutilated body was found there at 1.45 in the morning of the 30th September 1888. This was the westernmost of the Whitechapel Murders and the only one located within the City.
