Gutter Lane ran north-south from Cheapside to Maiden Lane. It was to the west of Wood Street and to the east of Foster Lane, lying within the north-eastern most area of Farringdon Ward Within and serving as a boundary to Aldersgate ward. It is labelled as Goutter Lane on the Agas map.
As Stow remarks, it is so called of Guthurun somtime owner thereof (Stow 253). Stow describes how fine siluer, such as was then made into foyle was commonly known as siluer of Guthuron’s lane (Stow 43). The inhabitants of this lane of old time were Goldbeaters (Stow 253). Other important sites included: Embroiderers’ Hall on the west side and Wax Chandlers’ Hall at the north-east corner by Maiden Lane (Stow 260; Harben).
Gutter Lane survives in modern London, between Foster Lane and Wood Street, terminating at Gresham Street in the north and Cheapside in the south.
