A monument fitted to the side of St Bartholomew's Hospital to remember the peasants revolt and the suffering both to those who gave their life and the problems of the time.

You don't need long to see this lovely place. Great if you wandering the sights to pop in, have a mini-picnic and a quiet sit down and contemplate the wonderful tiles reflecting those brace people hitherto unheralded. A little gem!

This is a public monument in Postman's Park. The monument consist of a short stretch of wall on which is affixed fifty-four memorial tablets commemorating sixty-two individuals, each of whom lost their life while attempting to save another. Ordinary people who died saving the lives of others who might otherwise be forgotten. Moving and poignant, it is worth a visit.

This tiny gem is just opposite the main entrance to St Bartholomew's hospital. There's a good half hour of interesting and moving reading on the memorial...all devoted to people who gave their lives to save others. Call in. Very near to my other favourite The Museum of London.
