According to legend the original Dirty Dick, Nathanial Bentley was a prosperous mid 18th century city merchant who allowed his hardware shop and warehouse to deteriorate into a state of dereliction following the death of his fiancée. Such was his notoriety for his dirty lifestyle he has been considered as Dickens' inspiration for Miss Havisham in his novel Great Expectations. Following demolition of the buildings, the former Old Jerusalem pub adopted the name.
