Fetter Lane is a street in the ward of Farringdon Without in the City of London. It forms part of the A4 road and runs between Fleet Street at its southern end and New Fetter Lane, which continues north towards Holborn Circus.
The earliest mention of the street is “Faitereslane” in 1312. The name occurs with several spellings until it settles around 1612. At the southern end, towards Fleet Street, is situated Clifford’s Inn, established in 1345. Towards the northern end, near Holborn, is Barnard’s Inn. They were both Inns of Chancery. The official address of the old Public Records Office (1856–1997) was on Chancery Lane, but the back of this building dominates the southern stretch of Fetter Lane. It is now the Maughan Library belonging to King’s College London.
On Fleet Street is St. Dunstan-in-the-West, and next to it, at 133-137 Fetter Lane, is St. Dunstan’s House. In Victorian times the publishing house Sampson Low was located at St. Dunstan’s House. Two plaster reliefs (1886) by Walter Crane were salvaged from the building when it was destroyed in 1905. They now stand next-door in the King’s College library. The site then became the main London warehouse of the Cambridge University Press. It is now the Technology and Construction Court hearing litigation related to science and engineering. The Admiralty Court is also at St. Dunstan’s House.
