At this location is a sculpture of Sir Thomas More in a small garden next to Chelsea Old Church. It was made by sculptor, Leslie Cubitt Bevis.


More (1478-1535) was an English lawyer, philosopher, statesman, and an author who wrote the fictional book, Utopia, which is about the social and political system of a fictional island.


He argued against Henry VIII's divorce with Catherine of Aragon and his new marriage with Anne Boleyn; More was accused of treason because of refusing to take the Oath of Supremacy and executed in the Tower of London as a result of this.


His last words were: "I die the King's good servant, but God's first". The Catholic Church declared him as a patron saint in year 2000.
