The Garden

The Stationers’ Company, who received their charter from Mary Tudor in 1557, were printers and booksellers, ‘stationed’ at fixed points in and around St Paul’s Churchyard. The hall was rebuilt after the Great Fire, along with its warehouse where the Stationers kept their stock. These buildings form three sides of a small courtyard with a delightful garden dominated by a London plane tree, planted in 1837, and said to have gained nourishment from the ashes of illegal books burnt here in earlier times. The modern garden is an inspirational example of a shade garden of flowers and shrubs.
