Woodins Shades - we returned here for lunch

For many years, The Woodins Shades has been a favourite meeting place for the traders of Petticoat Lane and Spitalfields Markets. Petticoat Lane is a historic Sunday street market but in the Middle Ages, it was a tree-lined country road called Hog's Lane, possibly because pigs were kept in nearby fields. A map of 1608 shows that by then it had acquired its 'new' Peticote Lane name, a name perhaps derived from the sellers of clothes.
