Site: Shakespeare - EC2 (1 memorial)
EC2, Noble Street, St Olave's churchyard, Silver Street
From old maps the location of Shakespeare's home, given as the junction of Silver Street and Monkwell Street (neither still in existence), was actually about where the giant red and blue vents are. It certainly was not in this churchyard.
