letter in Star re Dr William Marsden

Recommended Posts

An interesting letter in the Star tonight, about the founder of The Royal Marsden Hospital in London (recently in the news because of a serious fire) who was born in Sheffield in 1796.

Apparently there is a plaque (a blue plaque?) in the arcade near Argos in Angel street, marking his birthplace.

I noticed the rather nice plaque marking William Marsden's birthplace earlier today. I hadn't noticed it before although press reports say it was unveiled last summer replacing the earlier plaque mentioned in the original post. I didn't realise Marsden was born in Sheffield.
