Westminster Abbey was a historically significant church, located on the bottom-left corner of the Agas map. Colloquially known as Poets’ Corner, it is the final resting place of Geoffrey Chaucer, Ben Jonson, Francis Beaumont, and many other notable authors; in 1740, a monument for William Shakespeare was erected in Westminster Abbey (ShaLT).
