Oat Lane

Oat Lane ran east-west, connecting Noble Street in the west to Staining Lane in the east. It is drawn on the Agas map in the correct position and is labelled as Ote la. It was in Aldersgate Ward.
Stow has little to say about Oat Lane. In mapping out Aldersgate Ward, he simply directs the reader West through Oatelane (Stow 1:303). Stow and Harben are silent on the etymology of the lane; however, other sources claim that [o]ats used to be sold here (Weinreb, Hibbert, Keay, and Keay 597; Ekwall 107). On the corner of Oat Lane and Staining Lane stood the church of St. Mary Staining.
Oat Lane still exists in modern London. In 1961, the Worshipful Company of Pewterers established their third Pewterers’ Hall on Oat Lane.
