Mr Monkey came to Woodbridge Chapel, built in 1833 for some Independent High Calvinists, and later used by the Watercress and Flower Girls Christian Mission, the Clerkenwell and Islington Medical Mission, and, currently, the Clerkenwell Christian Centre. A couple of turns in the road later, Mr Monkey came to Jerusalem Passage. Before he went down it, he noticed a green plaque that told him the Thomas Britton, the Musical Coalman, had lived in the street. Britton sold coal for a living, but also gave concerts in which many famous musicians, such as Handel, played.
