Here Lies Geoffrey Barkington by Patrick McEvoy, Jubilee Gardens

Geoffrey Barkington was a Square Mile dog whose final resting place is within Jubilee Gardens, Houndsditch. Houndsditch marks the route of a ditch outside part of the London Wall, first dug in Roman times, and known for the disposal of deceased dogs. Several dog skeletons were discovered here in 1989 during construction works. Geoffrey’s gravestone was made with the help of Solid Geometry, Tarmac, Kilnbridge, University of Westminster and Prewett Bizley Architects.
