They're the same place Kaga. The Spicerstoke is just an older name, from before the Trinity Churchyard was there.

This is a cut out view from a postcard looking west along the church path towards the Spicerstoke. I've written before that the line of the path was originally further north (closer to the church). Link to explanation of original lane. Below is an image looking the other way, when the archway under the south transept still existed, although the path was by then diverted along a boundary wall. This route was not possible before the Jesus Hall, linked directly to the south transept, was demolished. I think that it was originally set up so that New Street, the path, the church archway and the Spicerstoke were all aligned. The only thing that stopped a straight route into Cross Cheaping was the last building in Butcher Row and there is a strong possibility that the constriction was a later development. Even Corpus Christi at the far end of New Street was on roughly the same alignment, although it was almost built over by the earliest modern maps. Only the Speed map shows it as a clearly defined road. Interesting co-incidence or planned feature? Note the clock!

I love this one from the Cooper collection as I don't think I've ever seen an image taken at this point. Hiltons the Bootmakers on the right as we enter Butcher Row -
