Searching for that short cut

hen and chick 3

This morning I was late for work and trying to find a cut-through from Fleet Street to Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Walking through one of the alleys I found this dead end called Hen & Chicken Court. It hasn’t much in it apart from a nice carved stone on the floor on the way in, a couple of fire exits and a single door at the end.

But legend has it, beside this alley is the site of Sweeney Todd’s notorious barber shop. Not your average back alley then! P

  1. The door is part of a town house owned by the Church of England. We used to use a side room for sunday school it has a door leading into the church next door and another into the house.
