Bunhill Fields Burial Ground Park

A dissenters burial ground which was established in 1685 and taken over by the City of London as a public open space in 1867. It contains monuments to Bunyan, Defoe and Samuel Wesley. The cemetery was damaged during the war and reconstructed in 1960 to a design by Sir Peter Shepherd. It is a relaxed and well mannered place with quiet walks and sitting spaces, good paving and choice planting. City Road EC1
