Vincent Square SW1

A proposal to open up the corner of the Westminster square to the public.

In the 18th century the land used to be part of Tothill Fields that were described as "of great use, recreation and pleasure". Before that, the land was a burial ground after the great plague. The R I P pathway through the plan symbolises both recreation and pleasure and of course rest in piece in memory of the history. RHS Lindley Library is situated opposite and planting within the site will offer an opportunity for library visitors to explore horticulture first hand. The leg of the R makes a physical link between the gardens and the library.
