Shepherdess Walk

Hoxton (N1) In the early part of the nineteenth century the "Eagle" Tavern at the end of this road was an old-fashioned public-house, with tea- and pleasure-gardens, called the "Shepherd and Shepherdess" Inn; in front of it was a bun-house, where the lads and lasses used to congregate and discuss with evident relish the ginger-beer and Chelsea buns which were the speciality of the Brothers Bush, who for many years kept the place (Shored itch, Besant, p. 17)
