Inscription in Angel Place (1)
One of five such plaques in the alley. This one reads "John Dickens, the father of Charles Dickens, was imprisoned here for debt from February to May 1824".
Angel Place
Angel Place is a long, narrow alleyway connecting the present residential area of Tennis Street at its east end with the historic Borough High Street at the western end.

The alleyway forms part of the site of the former Marshalsea Prison, before that the Surrey County Gaol. Southwark Council 'improved' it with new lighting and paving in 2004, and in 2010 added a series of inscribed stone plaques in the pavement.
