37a Clerkenwell Green
Built as the Welsh Charity School in 1738 to the designs of James Steer, but since 1933 the Marx Memorial Library. It was restored in 1969. A modest but attractive building of stuccoed brick, with painted quoins and a central pediment. Grade II listed.
The aim of the library is the "advancement of education, knowledge and learning by the provision of a library of books, periodicals and manuscripts relating to all aspects of the science of Marxism, the history of Socialism and the working class movement. More information here: LinkExternal link .
The listing records that Lenin edited ISKRA here from 1902-1903, making the building "of exceptional importance as the only surviving building in Britain intimately associated with Lenin."
Behind is the tower of St James.
