Charles Dickens Childhood Home

Once home to a very young Charles Dickens

Description: And so to this very address... it's actually 141 Bayham Street now...but then it was number 16.

Charles Dickens lived here as a child on Bayham Street in Camden but sadly the house has since been demolished.

Luckily some bright spark decided to mark the location with a blue plaque, so that's good news.
