Plaque: Marshalsea 4 - stone - spiral
But whosoever goes into Marshalsea Place ... will find his feet on the very paving-stones of the extinct Marshalsea jail ... and will stand among the crowding ghosts of many miserable years.
Quoted from Charles Dickens' preface to Little Dorrit.
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.
