Postman's Park

This small memorial gardens was created in 1880 from local churchyards.

The memorial in the park was the idea of the painter George Frederck Watts who wanted to celebrate the heroism of people who may otherwise have been forgotten.

The park's name celebrates the postmen who work in the principal London post office and the former sorting office in King Edward Street.

A wall in the park has 47 hand-painted tiles, made by Royal Doulton, paying tribute to everyday people who sacrificed their lives helping others.
