Bridewell Prison, Rose Street
The Bridewell prison stood on an area of ground between Rose Street and what was formerly called Henry Street. It opened to guests in 1809. The origin of the popular name is derived from a well between Fleet Street and the Thames, dedicated to St Bride or Bridget. The Corporation of London gained possession of it and a large part of it was turned into a notorious prison. The Bridewell was closed when Caiginches was opened in 1891.
