Bunhill Fields was in use as a burial ground from 1665 until 1854.


By the mid nineteenth century, about approximately 123,000 interments were estimated to have taken place of which over 2000 monuments remain.

It contains the graves of many notable people including John Bunyan, author of ’The Pilgrim’s Progress’; Susanna Wesley, known as the "Mother of Methodism"; Daniel Defoe, author of ’Robinson Crusoe’; William Blake (died 1827), artist, poet, and mystic; . It was a nondenominational burial ground, and was particularly favoured by nonconformists.

On the far side of Bunhill Row is a Quaker burial ground, also sometimes also known by the name Bunhill Fields and in use from 1661 to 1855. Its remains are a public garden, Quaker Gardens, managed by the London Borough of Islington.

100 Bishopsgate

100 Bishopsgate is a development of two mixed-use buildings on Bishopsgate in London.

A planning application was submitted by Great Portland Estates in September 2006 for the redevelopment of a site located at 61 St. Mary Axe, 80-86 Bishopsgate, 88-90 Bishopsgate, 12-20 Camomile Street, 15-16 St. Helen’s Place and 33-35 St. Mary Axe. The scheme proposed a mixed-used development comprising three buildings of 38, 16 and 6 storeys respectively.

The main tower (Building 1) would be formed of five podium floors, each of 44,000 sq ft (4,100 m2; 0.41 ha), and 32 tower floors, each of 19,000–25,000 sq ft (1,800–2,300 m2; 0.18–0.23 ha). The form of the lower part of the tower is designed to resolve the complex geometries of the site; thus the lower floors are shaped as parallelograms and the upper floors are shaped as rectangles.

The third building (Building 3) would be formed of six storeys of 8,000 square feet (740 m2) each, providing restaurant and office space.

A new public space of 0.5 acres (2,000 m2) is situated in the middle of the site.

The application was approved on 28 May 2008. In July 2011 the proposed height was increased by seven metres (23 ft) to 172 metres (564 ft).

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
