A modern information board in the garden informs: The garden of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate has retained its ties with the Eighth Battalion Royal Fusiliers (the City of London Regiment) TA since 1953 when the garden's railings were painted in the regimental colours. The church itself was made famous in the old nursery rhyme 'Oranges and Lemons' in which St Sepulchre's bells were 'the Bells of Old Bailey'.
