Mr Monkey scurried through a warren of little streets between Holborn and Fleet Street, admiring the some of the buildings. He was a little surprised to find a cannon on a naval carriage sitting on a small plinth. Apparently it's there so everyone knows where a very small square called Gunpowder Square is. It's only been there since 1989, and it's not far from where Gunpowder Alley was before it was destroyed by bombing in the Blitz.
