A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

Postman’s Park


Postman’s Park contains a wonder. “The Material Prosperity Of A Nation Is Not An Abiding Possession: The Deeds of Its People Are”.  There are many plaques, each tell a story.

The park is opposite the entrance to London’s St Bartholomew’s Hospital on King Edward Street.  It is small but has many benches and is very pretty in summer (this is a dank day in February).   About Postman’s Park ⇒.

They weren’t famous people and could easily have been forgotten. George Watts made sure that they were not.

  1. They all seem to have fascinating stories behind them. A lot of them seem to drownings. Is there a lake or canal nearby?

    • There are a lot of canals in London and the Thames which had some dangerous ferries operating. Add ice skating on thin ice and there were quite a few disaster.
