12. Postman’s Park
This central London park is just a short distance from St. Paul’s Cathedral, and is bordered by Little Britain, among other areas of note. The park is actually on the site of the former churchyard and burial ground of St. Botolph’s Aldersgate church, as well as the adjacent burial grounds of Christ Church Greyfriars. The park is home to George Frederic Watt’s Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice, which honors ordinary people who died while saving the lives of others–those heroes who might otherwise be forgotten.
