St. Paul’s Churchyard, London

Walking around St. Paul’s Cathedral, in London, the visitor enters the churchyard, which contains a number of statues and a beautiful, green garden.  This garden was first laid out as an open space in 1878, and combines the ancient burial grounds of the cathedral church of St. Paul, St. Gregory by St. Paul’s and St. Faith the Virgin under St. Paul’s. The restored railings, around the churchyard, are a very early paradigm of cast iron work dating from 1714.
