In 2006, Tindall released a book written about the address 49 Bankside in London, The House by the Thames. Since first built in 1710, the house had served as a home for coal merchants, an office, a boarding-house, a hangout for derelicts and finally once again a private residence in the 1900s. The house is listed in tour guides as a famous residence and has been variously claimed as possibly being home to Christopher Wren during the construction of St. Paul's Cathedral, and previously claimed residents included Catherine of Aragon and William Shakespeare.
