This small, tranquil and well-maintained square was originally laid out in 1853 and 1856 as part of the development belonging to the Corporation of Trinity House. The square includes 32 single houses (owned by Trinity House), and also the Holy Trinity Rectory, which was built in 1872. The square still has its original 19th century cast-iron railings. Part of the Merrick Square garden featured in the 2018 Disney film, Christopher Robin, when Winnie the Pooh tracked down Christopher Robin to a city park bench. Exterior shots were also used for Christopher Robin's family home in the film.
