Inscription in Angel Place (2)
Inscription in Angel Place (2)
One of five plaques along the alleyway. This one, presumably a quotation from Dickens' novel Little Dorrit set in the prison that stood here, reads "there was not one straight floor from the foundation to the roof; the ceilings were so fantastically clouded by smoke and dust that old women might have told fortunes in them better than in grouts of tea".
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.
