Catherine Wheel Inn
   On the east side of Bishopsgate, south of Catherine Wheel Alley. In Bishopsgate Ward Without (O. and M. 1677-O.S.).
   Here is Catherine Wheel Inn, and near is Catherine Wheel and George Yard (Hatton, 1708).
   It was the last of the old galleried inns in Bishopsgate, and was partly destroyed by fire in 1895. Lately pulled down (N. and Q. 11th S. III. p. 142, Jan. 1911).
   It has been suggested that the name was derived from the arms of the Turners' Company, prior to 1604, which were : Azure, a Catherine Wheel between 2 columns, or, in chief a regal crown proper, in base an axe argent, handled of the second lying fetteways, the blade downwards.
