It's difficult for me to imagine it as anything but the modern version. I would get completely lost if I were to visit the original layout and streets. it would be great fun though.

If anything the old layout was far easier to understand, although everyone seems to have trouble with where roads changed their name eg Fleet Street to Smithford Street, High Street to Earl Street to Jordan Well. Half the pictures I've got are labelled wrong. One main east, west road. 3 main roads to the south. Most things end up at Broadgate. The north of the city is more complicated but there was only one main road north, south and you always had the churches to orientate yourself. It's the modern city that blocks natural flow. That's not a criticism, just a quirk of changing use.
