3 Herrings, 15 Bell Yard

Division 11 met at the 3 Herrings in November 1792. According to spy Christopher Kennedy - a carpenter and constable at Bow Street - the division reported that "Mr Paine gave £1000 to the SCI since then £2000 has been Subscrib'd to prevent information and to defend Actions &c" (TS 11/959/3505; Thale 29).

Bell Yard is shown to the West of the map, parallel to Chancery Lane. Number 15 is shown behind numbers 12 and 13, backing on to them.

Bell Yard is at the eastern end of the Royal Courts of Justice, unlike many of the streets in this area, it survived the building of the RCJ, the structure of the 3 Herrings, however, no longer remains.
