Golden Lion Lane

Between 102 & 103 High Street

Portsmouth Evening News : Tuesday 1 July 1930

Golden Lion Lane as the eastern end of Lombard Street was formerly known, probably derived from the Golden Lion public-house, which appears in the list of licensed premises in 1776.  It was little more than a lane being so narrow as to admit of the passage of only one vehicle at a time.  Consequently, traffic between Portsmouth and Portsea was increasing rapidly, the Corporation in 1869 embarked upon its first road widening scheme.  A house at at the southern corner was bought and the churchyard wall set back several feet.  The only cause for regret in connexion with the widening is that the old-time name has disappeared.
