HistoryEdit

The street is medieval and was originally known as Gridlesmith Gate or Greytsmythisgate.[1] (Latin: Vicus Magnorum Fabrorum or Vicus Grossorum Fabrorum)

The name was changed around 1800 to Pelham street in compliment to the Duke of Newcastle. In 1844 the western end of the street was widened as far as Thurland Street,[2] and the eastern end was completed about 10 years later.
