Monopoly - Fleet St

Monopoly red square. £220.

I've missed a corner square. Free parking. I couldn't find any in London!
Fleet St named after the Fleet river that now runs under it. In medieval times this river ran alongside London's wall. Close to Temple and the Knights of Templar.
Still an area of the legal fraternity. The Royal Courts of Justice the magnificent building in the photo.
Also famous for years as the newspaper street whose offices were all here until the 1980's.
