Since joining epz I haven't had much time for tv, but one programme last year that did have me routed to the sofa was the BBC's adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'Little Dorrit'.

I love the fact that some of Dicken's Victorian London still exists and I get very excited that I can see, touch and even photograph places that Dickens has written about. London was such a different place a hundred years ago, and it is very easy, walking around it to miss it. So, consider my excitment when watching Little Dorrit and seeing a place called 'Bleeding Heart Yard' (great name eh?) and on looking in the A-Z, found it, still there! I vowed to go and find it and photograph it!

Alas, it has changed beyond recognition since Dickens knew it, but it still has a secluded charm to it. Mr Plorrish and his wife lived here. '(they were) so dragged at, by poverty and the children together, that their united forces had already dragged her face into wrinkles'. Also, the inventor Daniel Doyce had his factory above the gateway.

V1 is the sign to the Bistro, 'bleeding hard to find!'
V2 is the Bleeding Heart Tavern, now alas no more.
V3 is the end of the yard that still has a little charm left.
V4 is a general view looking the other way.

Thanks for looking, off to the Chinese New Year celebrations today! HAve a good sunday,

Tony

It's amazing how much of Dicken's London still exists, and though I seldom watch TV - never costume drama - and read precious little Dickens I can sense exactly what you mean from your photos that I find so atmospheric. It's the style of architecture that does it for me. Inordinately difficult to capture I suspect, but V3 says it all.

It's wonderful that such links still exist, in the most unlikely of places - we recently heard that Dickens lived and worked for a while in Newcastle, and the house where he lived still stands.
Not a lot seems to have changed here apart from a few stick-on signs, that's reassuring.
