Southwark – Charles Dickens 5

Leaving Angel Place (see previous post) and crossing Borough High Street brings you to Little Dorrit Court and then to a tiny children’s play area that is named after Little Dorrit. Amy Dorrit was born in the Marshalsea Debtors Prison and lived there all her life until her marriage near the end of the novel. Although other Dickens characters have been honoured with street names in the surrounding area this little playground is the most poignant.
