 The King’s School gate. Begun by St Augustine in 597AD, it is the world’s oldest. In 1541 King Henry VIII created 50 King’s Scholars and the modern name. Marlowe was a KS, 1579-1581.

 The shop at 28 Palace Street. Dickens’ quote on the fascia of “a very old house bulging out over the road...” is from David Copperfield 1849 that was partly set here. Above the door it says, “formerly the Old King’s School Shop circa 1647”.

 On right side of shop, a 1600s UK carving of a US Native from local links to The Mayflower ship.
