In the song "The Liberty of Norton Folgate", Madness describe a walk.


In the song "The Liberty of Norton Folgate", Madness describe a walk... well curiosity got the better of me, and here is what I think it would look like.
"Once round Arnold Circus. Up through Petticoat Lane Past The Well of Shadows And once back round again."

The Well of Shadows is now Shadwell, Arnold Circus is still there, and Petticoat Lane is now a market.

  1. Cos sailors from Africa, China and the archipelago of Malay
    Jump ship ragged and penniless into Shadwells Tiger Bay
    The Welsh and Irish wagtails, mothers of midnight
    The music hall carousel enspilling out into bonfire light
    Sending half crazed shadows, giants dancing up the brick wall
    Of Mr Trumans beer factory, waving, bottles ten feet tall

    Whether one calls it Spitalfields, Whitechapel, Tower Hamlets
    Or Banglatown. We're all dancing in the moonlight, we're all
    On borrowed ground.
