Building    From 1402 

Whittington's house

Categories: Property

Whittington had a number of addresses in London: Hart Street, Mark Lane, Sweedon’s Passage, Grub Street (now Milton Street) and a house in (now) College Hill.  This last was a significant purchase in February 1402, possibly also the year he married. It is not certain that the house shown in the picture is Whittington's.
