About Clerkenwell in the window

Clerkenwell took its name from the Clerks' (clergyman) Well in Farringdon Lane. In the Middle Ages Parish Clerks performed annual mystery plays there. Part of the well remains visible, incorporated into a 1980s building called Well Court. It is visible through a window of that building on Farringdon Lane.

 The Castle, housed in a Grade II listed building, is steeped in history and holds a pawnbroker's licence that was issued by King George IV; the story goes that the King exchanged his gold pocket watch for money with the Landlord, to fund a flutter on the cockfights hosted by the pub.
