I first mentioned the Crossbones Graveyard in 2012 and thought it would be a good idea to see if it still existed. There has been so much construction work in this area that I thought it might have been swallowed up by one of the big developers.
Crossbones Graveyard is a post medieval burial ground and now, instead of it being a small area of wasteland, it is a community garden opened and maintained by volunteers.
It's estimated to hold the remains of 15,000 paupers, more than half of them children. This was the Single Women's churchyard for the 'Winchester Geese'.
The Geese were women licensed by the church to work in brothels.
Since 1996 the friends of Crossbones have worked to protect Crossbones and raise awareness of its historical, cultural and spiritual significance. From 2006 to 2012 they worked alongside the 'invisible gardener' to create a secret guerrilla garden.
Since 2015 they have collaborated with Bankside Open Spaces Trust to maintain a community garden of remembrance on the site of this ancient burial ground.
This is known as the pyramid and is embedded with oyster shells from nearby Borough Market.
