The Garden

This formal garden square was built between 1824 and 1832 by the Corporation of Trinity House. The Corporation still maintains the garden and also owns much of the surrounding square, whilst the church is now the Henry Wood Hall which is used for orchestral rehearsals. The core the statue in the centre of the garden is nearly 2,000 years old, and much of the lower half is Roman. The upper half was created in the early 19th century when it was added to the Roman sculpture to become a figure of Alfred, the revered Anglo Saxon King of England.
