St Martin in the Fields has very famous people buried here such as Nell Gwynne (Charles II's mistress).
Although there has always been a church on this spot since the 13th century, the current one was built in 1726. This style is very much like the once seen in Colonial America as it influenced the churches of this time.
It was used from 1914-1927 to shelter homeless soldiers and in WWII served as an air-raid shelter.
Today it continues to hold soup kitchens for the homeless at lunchtime.
It holds many events such as evening concerts and craft fairs.
This square was developed in 1830.
On top of the pillar in the centre is the infamous Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson, a man truly larger than life.
The fourth plinth of the square changes frequently so keep an eye out. My sister-in-law was part of a project where people spent and hour on here for a few months.
