Place

Polygon Road was the site of The Polygon - a fifteen sided building of 32 houses situated around a garden. William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft lived at No 29 for a time and their daughter, later to become Mary Shelley, was born here. Charles Dickens lodged at No 17 some years later when the area was in decline (in 1828). The Polygon was demolished in 1890.
