The Walrus and The Carpenter takes its name from a poem by Lewis Carroll. The verse is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee in ‘Through The Looking Glass’. We stand in the shadow of history, in view of The Monument to commemorate the Great Fire of London. The column’s height marks the distance to the site of Thomas Farynor’s bakery in Pudding Lane where the fire began.
