This Borough wide project aims to provide these amazing little mammals somewhere to roost. Come along to find out more about St Leonard's churchyard. The 19th century church was destroyed in World War II and this memorial gateway and the little garden behind are all that remain, following the construction of the A102.

The name of St Leonard's was originally used by a nunnery on this site founded about 1120. The gateway was erected in memory of George Augustus Mayo How, Rural Dean of Stepney, 1840-1893. Some fragments of gravestones can be seen in the area beyond the gate.
