London – Shakespeare 4

Another stop on the self-guided “Shakespeare’s London” walk, which can be downloaded from the City of London website, is a little known memorial to Shakespeare and his colleagues Condell and Heminge. The memorial is on the site of St Mary Aldermanbury, a church which was destroyed in the Blitz. Henry Condell and John Heminge, who edited and published the First Folio edition of Shakespeare’s plays, lived in the parish of St Mary Aldermanbury and were buried in its churchyard.
