Lamb's Chapel is situated in a court at the northwest corner of Monkwell Street, and was found in the reign of Edward I. At the dissolution of religious houses, Henry VIII granted it to William Lambe, a rich citizen and clothworker, who bequeathed it in 1568, with other property, to the Clothworkers Company, of which he was a member.  It has been recently rebuilt with a row of alms houses by the company.
