All Saints Garden gets it’s name from the All Saints church which once stood here, in St John’s or Trinty Street, Cambridge. There was in fact there was a church here from the 11th century, until it was destroyed in 1865, when St. John’s Street was widened.

LeKeux’ print of 1861 shows the church, with it’s tower over the pavement… Before St John’s Street was widened

As LeKeux’ print showed, in 1861 the tower rested on an arch over the pavement.

Nowadays, it is a delightful tree-shaded haven in the heart of historic Cambridge, just across the road from the gatehouses of Trinity and St John’s College.

The Market has flourished over the years, earning itself a reputation for beautiful, quality arts and crafts at affordable prices, and has become what is arguably the best of it’s kind in the country.
