Samuel Plimsoll's House. Directly opposite this plaque was the childhood home of Samuel Plimsoll (1824-1898) who went on to achieve national renown in 1875 with the embodiment in law of the Uniform Loading Line (The Plimsoll Line). In the same year a new type of canvas sole with a rubber band was named 'Plimsoll' in his honour.
