Wild flowers in the Eden Garden, Clapham
The Eden Garden is located in St Paul's Churchyard. There has been a church on this site since the 12th century when it was the parish church for the village of Clapham. The existing church building was dedicated to St Paul in 1815 and is Grade II* listed. The churchyard was extended to provide a burial ground for parishioners who died from the Plague and later for Roundhead soldiers killed in the Civil War battle for Battersea Marshes. It was closed for burials in 1854.

Eden at St Paul's was closed in 2000 as a community garden, turning an area of disused church land into a tranquil inner city space. It aims to create and maintain a sustainable habitat for wildlife and promote biodiversity by planting British native species and through organic gardening. St Paul's Churchyard and the Eden Garden are holders of the 'Green Flag Award'.

Eden is independently funded by various charitable trusts and individual donations. More information can be found at LinkExternal link
