Inscription in Angel Place (3)
Inscription in Angel Place (3)
One of five plaques along the alleyway. This one reads "This site had been occupied by the Surrey County or White Lion Prison until 1799. Both the Surrey County and Marshalsea Prisons had a long, thin site running towards the present Tennis Street."
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.
