Maunder’s Fishmonger

Introduction
The Chelsea Embankment was built as a sewer cover and river Thames flood defence in 1874. When old Lombard Street below became part of a widened Cheyne Walk, this quaint 1600s shop could be seen face on for the first time and was a magnet for artists. Writer Thomas Carlyle’s wife Jane bought fish here. Cheyne Walk is now a magnet for the rich and famous!
