Marshalsea Prison - Angel Alley Marshalsea 3 - stone - Little Dorrit
Inscription

The heroine of Dickens' novel Little Dorrit was one resident who was not a prisoner.

Site: Marshalsea Prison - Angel Alley (6 memorials)

SE1, Borough High Street, Angel Alley

We've put the pin for these 6 plaques at the entrance to the alleyway but they are actually laid into the ground, distributed along the alley all the way to Tennis Street. We've numbered them west to east. In our picture you can see the old wall, the steel plaque and the first of the stone plaques.
