On the 1884 Ordnance Survey Map, the area is called Gallow’s Wharf, but by the 1920s it was known as St John’s Wharf.

The wharf is close to the site of the Lichfield Gallows originally erected in 1532 where the last  people were hung on 1st June 1801, with three forgers receiving their punishment.
