Huggin Lane, Wood Street ran east-west connecting Wood Street in the east to Gutter Lane in the west. It ran parallel between Cheapside in the south and Maiden Lane in the north. It was in Cripplegate Ward. It is labelled as Hoggyn la on the Agas map.
Stow tells us that Huggin Lane is named after one Hugan, that of olde time dwelled there: hee was called Hugan in the lane as I have read (1:297). Huggin Lane ran past the south side of St Michael, Wood Street church which was situated at the Lane’s corner with Wood Street. While the only door to St Michael, Wood Street formerly opened onto Huggin Lane, in 1627 Parishioners made a new Door to this Church [. . .] into Woodstreet (Strype).
Huggin Lane, Wood Street no longer exists in modern London. Instead, the street connecting Gutter Lane to Wood Street is Goldsmith Street, presumably named after the Goldsmiths’ Hall located nearby.
