St Thomas' Peace Garden - A Birmingham Gem!

St Thomas' Peace Garden ( the Peace Gardens) is a small public park, situated in Birmingham

The park symbolises peace and is a memorial to all those killed in armed conflict. St Thomas Church was built in 1825 and much of it was destroyed in 1940. In 1955, the gardens around it were laid out to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. In 1995, they were re-designed to commemorate 50 years since the end of World War 2.....
