Swan's Nest Court
   On the west of Little Bell Alley, a new passage up steps into Great Swan Alley; well built and inhabited (Maitland, '775).
   The Swan's Nest public house was in the court and seems to have been situated on the banks of the Walbrook (1868) (Trans. L. and M. Arch. Soc. III. p.507).
