Clerkenwell pub history index
Following the construction of Clerkenwell Road in the 1870s, which reconfigured the street layout in this area, the building on this site became the Sessions House Hotel, 120 Clerkenwell Road. Red Lion Street is now Britton Street, and a pub opened to the south at 55 Britton Street in 1996, taking this pub's name. *
