Pudding Lane

Pudding Lane is the street in London formerly containing Farryner’s bakehouse where the Great Fire of London began in 1666. It is off Eastcheap in the City of London, near London Bridge. The nearest tube station is Monument. It is allegedly named after the ‘puddings’ (medieval word for entrails and organs) which would fall from the carts coming down the Lane from the butchers in Eastcheap as they headed for the waste barges on the Thames.
