Description

St George’s Gardens was a cemetery  up till 1855, when it was closed due to overcrowding.  In 1885 the Gardens were reopened as a public garden as part of a movement which aimed to remodel overgrown urban graveyards into spaces for the urban poor to socialise.

Over the course of the 20th Century the Gardens fell into disrepair, but were revitalised due to a lottery grant and reopened in 2001.
