Christchurch Newgate index
The inn was established in the sixteenth century and rebuilt following the Great Fire of London. It closed and was demolished in 1876 or 1877. ** John Lockie in 1810 describes the thoroughfare as "Oxford Arms inn, Warwick Lane, is the third on the Right from 10 Newgate street. or the second on the Left from 29 Ludgate Street along Ave Maria lane."
The Roman wall passes very close to the rear - "Keeping at the back of the present prison, the wall passed the ends of the College of Physicians, Warwick Square, the Oxford Arms Inn, Stationers' Hall, and the London Coffee-house, Ludgate Hill, where it abutted at Ludgate, the distance being forty-two perches. From Ludgate it continued by Cock Court to New Bridge Street, where remains of it are at present very perceptible, whence it proceeded along the Fleet Ditch to the east side of Chatham Square and to the Thames, at the distance of one hundred and thirty perches, making up a total of two miles and six hundred and eight feet in circuit."
