Linking McNair Street with Gurdwara Road, Herriot Street (or Lebuh Herriot) is one of the streets of the Prangin Canal area. It was found to be named after Stuart Herriot, reportedly a 19th century British merchant who made a petition to the British government on behalf of Chinese Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee to intervene in the Larut War which later resulted to the founding of Taiping and Kamunting.
