View towards the pavilion of Vincent Square, London


Vincent Square is a large grass-covered square in Westminstermarker, Londonmarker, Englandmarker, covering 13 acres. It provides playing fields for Westminster Schoolmarker, which privately owns it.

It was created by Dean Vincent, Headmaster of Westminster School, a few hundred yards away, who, on seeing that development was beginning to encroach on the wastelands of Tothill Fields (which was a former plague pit), paid for a bank and ditch to enclose a suitable playing area for the schoolboys .

After the Second World War, the School resisted the efforts of the local authority to make the Square available for public use .

The square contains a cricket pavilion[280286], four football pitches, several tennis courts, and the groundsman's house, and is used every weekday by Westminster Under Schoolmarker during breaks.
