London Bridge Niche

London Bridge Niche
Dickens Walk in Southwark. www.walksoflondon.co.uk/31/index.shtml

The old London Bridge had several of these niches along it, and young David Copperfield often took shelter in them. The niche dates from 1176; it was purchased by Guy's Hospital for 10 guineas and installed in this courtyard in 1861. The bronze statue is of the poet John Keats, who trained at Guy's as a surgeon-apothecary from 1815 to 1816.
