Pudding Chare


A narrow winding lane (or chare), which runs from the Bigg Market to Neville Street. "There are a number of interpretations for the use of the word "Pudding". It could be a reference to black pudding, sold in the Flesh Market, or to the hidden stream of High or Pow Dene, or to the intestine-like quality of the winding lane. It is possibly more likely that it evolved to describe the muddy surface of a lane. Pudding Chare is of some age as grants and leases for properties in this street exist from the C13 and C14. First documentary reference to Pudyngchare is in 1333." (T&W SiteLines)

Pudding Chare. This street, according to Bourne, was anciently called Budding Chare. It leads to the Bigg Market, but is narrow, dirty, and inconvenient for carriages. It communicates with a foot-way, called Gravesend Walk, that runs along the south side of St. John's church-yard, by another little street, named anciently St. John's Chare, but now Rosemary Lane. St. Mary's Hospital stands opposite to the south end of this lane.
