Old Church Garden - site

Inscription

The Old Church Garden commemorates the site of the old parish Church of St Marylebone, built 1400, rebuilt 1741, demolished 1949.
The sunken portion of the garden marks the actual foundations of the church dedicated to St Mary. The River Tyburn flowed near by and thus the village took its name of St. Mary-le-bourne. This historic ground was laid out as a garden-of-rest in the Festival Year 1951.

The middle of 3 plaques on the back wall of the garden.

Possibly the loveliest plaque in London, though it has strong competition from Sir Edward Elgar and Sophie Fedorovitch.
