A small garden laid out in two circles can be found near Canary Wharf that was created in memory of those who have worked on the Isle of Dogs.
Opened by the Queen Mother in 2001 it was the result of many years of campaigning by locals to block developers building on the site, which was once a row of houses, but was cleared in the post-war years.
Other than that, it’s been surprisingly difficult to find any information about it.
It’s well maintained though, and rather pleasing to pause in if taking a walk along the Westferry Road.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
