Bakers' Hall

   On the east side of Harp Lane at No. 16. In Tower Ward (P.O Directory).
   The Hall is mentioned as early as 1555 in Ct. Hust. Wills, II. p. 659, but the situation is not given.
   Stow (ed. 1598, p. 135) says the house was formerly the dwelling house of John Chichele, Chamberlain of London, 1435-46 (Cal. L. Bk. K. pp.57, 400, etc.), but he does not say when it came into the hands of the Bakers' Company.
   Destroyed by fire in 1715 and rebuilt. Restored and repaired 1825.
