Where's my home?

Stratford upon Avon

There used to be a house here, Shakespeare's house actually. This is where he retired - and later died in 1616. I believe nearly 200 years later, in a classic 'oops', the then owner razed the house rather than pay increased taxes on it. There's a garden on the spot today and all that's left of the original house are the foundations.
