Tulip in the Quaker Memorial Garden, St Albans


The Religious Society of Friends – otherwise known as the Quakers – bought a plot of land in St Albans in 1676 for a meeting house. Although no records exist of this (the second meeting house) being built, the plot was used for some two hundred years as a Quaker burial ground.

This plot is now leased to St Albans Council and provides a pleasant public garden to the front of the Police Station in Victoria Street.
