8 - Cheshire Court – the Standard

Inscription

Cheshire Court
The Standard
Monday May 21, 1827
{A facsimile of a page of the paper.}

The Standard newspaper was first printed at 5 New Bridge Street, Blackfriars.

Site: Fleet Street Courts - 8 plaques (8 memorials)

EC4, Fleet Street

There are 8 Courts running off the north side of this section of Fleet Street and on the ground at the entrance to each Court is a plaque commemorating the printing industry which was previously based here. Rather than put a pin on each site we have recorded all 8 plaques here, listed west to east. The entrances to the courts are very anonymous, as illustrated by the Crane Court entrance shown here.
