First memorial I've seen like this, dedicated to the average joe and their selfless acts. Quiet little spot to sit and reflect. Loved reading the many tiles.

We read about Watts' Memorial through a guide book of "hidden" London sights, and we really enjoyed exploring the wall of plaques and reading about the acts of heroism by everyday citizens. The memorial is tucked away in Postman's Park and easy to walk by, but well worth a quick stop if you are in the neighborhood. The writing and memorials, most of it for deeds performed over 100 years ago, is charming and direct, and serves to remind us all that people around us every day perform selfless acts to assist others, oftentimes complete strangers. Very inspiring!

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.
