Poetry Landmarks

Morden Tower


(Associated Place)


One of the oldest poetry venues in England with a fantastic record of poets reading there - Basil Bunting, Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney - and still lots of readings taking place. Check out the website - www.mordentower.org - for a full history and current programme.
Built in the late 13th Century, it's a round, stone room set in the city wall. Definitely worth a visit.
