Plaque: Marshalsea 5 - stone - at gates
Both the Surrey County and Marshalsea Prisons had a long, thin site running towards the present Tennis Street.
This site had been occupied by The Surrey County or White Lion Prison until 1799.
This is our first push-me-pull-you plaque. It is in Angel Alley at the gates into the garden.
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.
