Shakespeares Birthplace

Shakespeare's Birthplace - Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire

Height 7.5 cm 10 cm

This half-timbered house on Henley Street is similar to many sixteenth-century buildings in Stratford-upon-Avon — built with timber from the nearby Forest of Arden and roofed with blue-grey stone from Wilmcote — what makes it stand out from all of the others, however, is its association with the world’s most famous poet and dramatist, William Shakespeare. In 1857 the neighbouring properties were demolished to diminish the risk of fire to this most precious of buildings.
