Pudding Lane is formerly the location of Thomas Farriner's bakehouse where the Great Fire of London began in 1666. According to the chronicler John Stow, it is allegedly named after the "puddings" (medieval word for entrails and organs) which would fall from the carts coming down the lane from the butchers in Eastcheap as they headed for the waste barges on the Thames. The Monument which was constructed between 1671 and 1677 as a memorial to the Great Fire is the tallest isolated stone column in the world. The Monument, topped with a gilded urn of fire, was designed by Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke. Its 202 foot height marks the Monument's distance to the site where the fire began.
