Site: St Mary Magdalene Gardens (1 memorial)

N7, Holloway Road

St Mary Magdalene was built in 1814 as a chapel of ease to Islington Parish Church, the parish having grown from the mid C18th onwards, and became a parish in its own right in 1894. The former burial ground was converted as public gardens and opened in May of that year.

The plaque is on a gate post on Holloway Road.
