Skin Market Place
St Saviour, Southwark, London

Skin Market Place was one of a number of places in London that were originally involved in the tanning trade. The old warehouses have been demolished to make way for Shakespeare's Globe, and the alley itself, though technically still a public thoroughfare, is nestled behind the Globe, and intersects with Cardinal Cap Alley (by Bankside Jetty).

"Taken from the New Globe Walk end of the alleyway; the old warehouses would have been to the right, where the Shakespeare's Globe now is."
