Description

St Alphage church has a long history dating back to medieval times. The ruined 14th century tower is all that remains. By 1872 the former churchyard had become a small public garden, bounded on its north side by a high section of the Roman city wall (which forms the boundary with the adjacent Salters' Garden). The present garden includes flowerbeds, trees and seating, as well as a gate looking into Salters' Garden.
