NEW PLACE GARDEN AND ITS FAMOUS MULBERRY TREE

NEW PLACE GARDEN AND ITS FAMOUS MULBERRY TREE

Of the fine house Shakespeare bought and in which he died on his fifty-second birthday, April 23, 1616, only the foundations remain. From the garden, bright with many flowers as it was in the great man's day, we get a view of the Guild Chapel and, standing by the celebrated Mulberry Tree, held to be a descendant of one planted by Shakespeare's own hand, we can see the spire of Holy Trinity Church among the trees. Michael Drayton the poet and Ben Jonson the actor are said to have been entertained here by Shakespeare.
