I don't think that it could have been at the current premises. Number 54
St. Martins lane is quite narrow, and nestled snugly between numbers 53 and
55, suggesting that no-one has re-numbered that street in the past couple of
hundred years*

Maybe one of the two was next door.

  This makes it rather hard to extend the street.
