Tower Hill Martyrs
EC3, Trinity Square
This is an odd square arrangement of plaques surrounded with bedding plants and miniature pylons chained together to form trip hazards. The Kilmarnock & Balmerino plaque is flat on the ground at the centre. Arranged around three edges of the square are 5 slightly raised plaques, in total listing 27 names, each with their year of death, in date sequence. We show here just one of the plaques.
A London Inheritance has a great post which shows this site in 1947.
A permanent scaffold was sited here for public decapitation. Important people, mainly royals, were executed nearby, within the grounds of the Tower.
