History

Biffen Lane was named after the late-19th century comptroller of Foulkes Village, Fortescue Biffen, whose accountancy firm was situated in Dickensian offices above the Lane's iconic archway. From these dark, labyrinthine offices, Biffen developed his theory of Foulkesian economics as the Village transitioned from an agricultural to an industrial economic model.

During the gentrification of Foulkes Village in the early 21st century, the steeply sloping Lane was a popular venue for impromptu hipster alleycat races. Fixed gear, steel-framed bicycles in coordinated colourways clashed with elderly residents rocking aluminium-framed Zimmers.

These bloody scenes were replicated just months later, when elderly but persistent zombies mobbed hapless youths as the latter idled languidly in nearby cafes, sipping lattes and smoking French cigarettes even as the oldsters ripped off their Urban Outfitters clothing and snacked on the skinny legs and ribcages beneath.
