Conduit Street

The History and Survey of London and Its Environs From the Earliest Period to the Present Time.(1806) by B. Lambert

The south end of George street terminates in Conduit street which with great part of New Bond street is built upon the site of a field formerly called Conduit mead from one of the conduits which supplied this part of the town with water.

In Conduit Street is a chapel called Trinity chapel the history of which is very remarkable. It was originally a wooden field chapel erected by James II and fixed upon wheels for the purpose of being conveyed wherever his majesty went it being fitted up for his private masses. In the year 1686 it was in his camp at Hounslow heath where it remained until sometime after the Revolution when it was removed and placed near the north end of Old Bond street Where it remained and was used as a chapel by the neighbouring inhabitants until the year 1716 when it was demolished and the present building Erected for the same use.

From the west end of Conduit street is a street called Bruton street leading into Berkeley square which derives its name from its vicinity to the former mansion of Lord Berkeley of Stratton.

 Chapter 27 
Mrs. Jennings soon appeared, and the note being given her, she read it aloud. It was from Lady Middleton, announcing their arrival in Conduit Street the night before, and requesting the company of her mother and cousins the following evening.
 Chapter 30 
Lord! how concerned Sir John and my daughters will be when they hear it! If I had had my senses about me, I might have called in Conduit Street in my way home, and told them of it. But I shall see them to-morrow."
 Chapter 32 
About this time, the two Miss Steeles, lately arrived at their cousin's house in Bartlett's Buildings, Holborn, presented themselves again before their more grand relations in Conduit and Berkeley Street; and were welcomed by them all with great cordiality.
 Chapter 33 
After staying with them half an hour, he asked Elinor to walk with him to Conduit Street, and introduce him to Sir John and Lady Middleton. The weather was remarkably fine, and she readily consented. As soon as they were out of the house, his enquiries began.
 Chapter 34 
So well had they recommended themselves to Lady Middleton, so agreeable had their assiduities made them to her, that though Lucy was certainly not elegant, and her sister not even genteel, she was as ready as Sir John to ask them to spend a week or two in Conduit Street.
 Chapter 36 
This event, highly important to Mrs. Jennings's happiness, produced a temporary alteration in the disposal of her time, and influenced in a like degree the engagements of her young friends; for as she wished to be as much as possible with Charlotte, she went thither every morning as soon as she was dressed, and did not return till late in the evening; and the Miss Dashwoods, at the particular request of the Middletons, spent the whole of every day in Conduit Street.
