"These are very good specimens of the overhanging houses of the beginning of the seventeenth century. It is only to be regretted that the extreme narrowness of the street made it impossible to give the full effect of this picturesque group," writes Alfred Marks. He goes on to inform us that Dr. Johnson worshipped at St. Clement Danes Church which can be seen behind the old houses.
