This hidden, semi-wild, garden in the middle of Bloomsbury was once part of the first graveyard set outside church land in London. The gravestones (and bodies) remain. It then became the site of a medical school specialising in anatomy and dissection and was used by the University of London and the Garrett Anderson Hospital for Women. For the past 50 years the garden, which was given in posterity of the use of children, has been used by a cooperative nursery run by local parents.
The gardens will be running activities for children and their families as part of Open Garden Squares Weekend 2014 (Saturday June 14 and Sunday June 15 10am-5pm).
