Basil Hume

The Quiet Garden in memory of Cardinal Basil Hume OSB, OM, Archbishop of Westminster (2 March 1923 – 17 June 1999) is attached to St. Joseph’s Church.

This space, previously the car park of St. Joseph’s Church, was created in 2002 by Father Bruno Healy, together with landscape gardener Simon Peter Stobart with some Japanese-design influence. It has won a number of garden awards. It provides a green space in the midst of the City’s concrete jungle for local office workers, students and residents.
