St Clement's Church from King Square Gardens
St Clement's Church from King Square Gardens
King Square was originally laid out between 1822 and 1825 on land belonging to St Bartholomew’s Hospital, with the church of St Barnabas built on the east side by 1826. The church was badly damaged during the Second World War but was rebuilt and re-opened in 1956, and later renamed St Clement’s Church. It is in the Parish of St Clement with St Barnabas and St Matthew.

By the 1950s the area was run-down and a new housing estate was planned. The King Square Estate was built for Finsbury Borough Council between 1959 and 1965 and the garden square was re-landscaped and kept as public open space surrounded by the new estate. Over half a million pounds has recently been spent on improvements to the park.
