Site: Walsingham (1 memorial)

EC3, Seething Lane, 35, Walsingham House

This is is the site of Walsingham's mansion, where he died in 1590.  In 1656 the Navy Office was erected.  Follow that link for more info on the site.  

This unusual memorial was brought to our attention by Ralph Stephen.  The glass picture is above the entrance door and we think forms the window to a room on the first floor.  Decorative glass is made to be viewed from the interior so if any one ever visits the building we would be very grateful for a picture from the inside. We asked the guard at the desk, very politely, but he wasn't having any of it.
