St Matthew's Church Garden

Introduction

Two railed tombs remain, including that of former churchwarden Joseph Merceron. It is mostly grassed over, with large plane trees by an oval path to the north of the church. There are remains of the C19th railings on the boundary with St Matthew’s Row. A rose garden is to the south of the church and an area to the east has formal beds, palms and other ornamental planting.
