CHARLES DICKENS ~
Stayed at 92, North Road, in 1832.
A blue plaque commemorates his stay.
The entire Dickens family lodged here in the August of 1832, when the family was undergoing financial difficulty.
Apparantly, Dickens used to frequent The Red Lion and Sun nearby.
It is recorded that, because of the lack of room at 92, he wrote to a friend, saying "I myself hang out at the Red Lion, but should you be disposed to stay all night I have no doubt you can be provided with a bed at the same Establishment."
