The Garden Guide

Canon Street Station Roman Garden

Cannon Street Station is a steel mega-structure   (built 2007-11) which supports an office block and a canopy for the platforms in an anti-septic Modernism architectural style. Far below are the archaeological remains of London’s Roman Praetorium.  It was the army HQ/Governor's Palace and had an ornamental pool which implies the existence of a garden. We therefore ask Network Rail to sponsor a digital projector on the concourse and use it to display images of Roman gardens, Roman palaces and Roman London.  When trains are cancelled it could provide passenger information and other entertainment.

Sponsorship opportunities: Network Rail, or any wealthy communter who would like to gladden the hearts of his fellow travellers
