------------------------------ The Heritage of Fleet Street
The Heritage of Fleet Street

The Fleet Street Heritage Project started with the opening of the Fleet Street Heritage sundial on the corner with Bouverie Street in October 2021. Since then, we have developed the Fleet Street Heritage Project with the rest of our grant from the City of London Neighbourhood Fund. We have now completed our grant target of 70 information pages/webpages about many aspects of the heritage of Fleet Street, including some of the people, places and ideas which have contributed to its rich history, and also mini-biographies of many of the current and ancient newspapers printed here.

The development of the Heritage Project and this website has been a team effort between our volunteer staff, the Castle Baynard Ward Club, the Fleet Street Quarter, and the many other people who have written pages for us. We would welcome your input
Would you like to:
