A welcome green space in the City. Pretty gardens and the most stunning wall of tributes to unsung heroes whose bravery is recorded here on beautiful plaques, a moving and poignant reminder of their feats of courage some as young as ten years.

This is not well known and is an unusual memorial to Victorian self sacrifice as well as a nice place to sit in the sun..as did the postmen of yesteryear. Note the statue of Roland Hill across the road.

Dwarfed by surrounding development in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral, this tiny park pays tribute to acts of heroism, and provides a place to sit and think (and eat lunch!) The theme of "others before self" makes this place unique, and worthy of a...More
