Peter’s Lane, EC1M

Place Name

Listed in Stow’s Survey as St Peter’s Lane, there was a tavern called the Cross Keys or St Peter’s Key, which are the coat of arms of the Holy See and symbolise the keys of heaven entrusted to Simon Peter. The keys are gold and silver to represent the power of loosing and binding.¬†Today a modern office block stands here but the sign lives on.
