Samuel Pepys

19 October 2014

Region: London

We’re looking for Pepys in Bleeding London today.


There are a number of allusions and references to Samuel Pepys in Geoff Nicholson's novel Bleeding London (and indeed, a chapter devoted to the great diarist), so today we’re looking for places associated with Pepys.  This can be one of the obvious streets (there are twelve and we only have five) or one of the “Samuel” streets or any of the places mentioned in the book (pp. 246-248 in the 1997 edition; 262-264 in the 2014 edition and 70% of the way through the Kindle version).


There are bonus points for any Pepys uploads and double bonus points for creative thinking  (BPCC 1910).
