[Milton-L] Milton in London?

There's a dark blue square plaque now on Bread Street where his house was, not your standard light blue oval one that appears on  houses of other famous persons.  If you go to Cambridge, be sure to be there on Thursdays afternoon from 2:00-4:30 as this is the only time when the Milton exhibition is open to the public at Christ's College.  There is some great stuff there, first editions of Milton's PL and other works and a note in the handwriting of the third Mrs. Milton agreeing to receive 5 pounds from publishers for one of Milton's documents.

  Dear all,

  As an American Milton lover now in the UK, I am hoping to visit some of the Milton sites--I have been to Ludlow and am hoping to see Cambridge soon as well as the cottage in Chalfont St Giles.  My question is whether there are any sources with Milton value still left in London.  For example, the school at St. Paul's that he attended must now be gone since the old cathedral would have been destroyed in 1666.  Are there any blue plaques to his house on Bread Street?  Or the other location in London where he lived in his later years, I've forgotten the street.  I have been on several history walks around London before--Dickens, Shakespeare, the area in the City, and Jack the Ripper--but no one seems to have anything Milton-themed, which is a shame since it is HIS year.   :-)  Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.  

  Many thanks.
