Mr Monkey went along the road and round the corner to Hall's Croft. John Hall and his wife Susanna, Shakespeare's eldest daughter, probably lived here until Shakespeare died when they moved to New Place. Hall was a wealthy doctor, so the house is full of expensive furniture and paintings, and a lot of scary looking Elizabethan medical equipment. Mr Monkey examined the property, then scampered out into the garden to check the time on the sundial.
