St Martin's Gardens
St Martin's Gardens
Small area that has been set aside as a public space. It was originally consecrated in 1805 as an overflow cemetery for St Martin-in the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, and a few years later a chapel and almshouses (left, behind the west wall) were built. In 1854 permission was given to develop the site but this caused a riot when bodies were dug up and the labourers were driven off. It is said that the central mound contains the corpses exhumed at that time.
The public drinking fountain in the foreground dates from 1889.
