Site: Toynbee Hall (1 memorial)

E1, Old Castle Street, Evershed House

As far as we can tell this never was the site of Toynbee Hall which appears always to have been sited at 28 Commercial Street, as it still is.

Opposite this plaque the old 1846 Wash Houses have appropriately been recreated as the Women's Library.
