Bolt Court
The Sun
{A facsimile of a page of the paper.}
Tuesday 15 September 1964.

The Sun was launched to replace the Daily Herald. First printed at Bouverie Streeet, south of Fleet Street.

Site: Fleet Street Courts - 8 plaques (8 memorials)

EC4, Fleet Street

There are 8 Courts running off the north side of this section of Fleet Street and on the ground at the entrance to each Court is a plaque commemorating the printing industry which was previously based here. Rather than put a pin on each site we have recorded all 8 plaques here, listed west to east. The entrances to the courts are very anonymous, as illustrated by the Crane Court entrance shown here.
