Marylebone Village’s New Elm Leaf Installation

Set in the heart of London, Marylebone Village stands as a living testament to time, its streets imbued with a rich tapestry of history and charm.

Recently, this dynamic neighbourhood unveiled a captivating addition to its landscape: a fresh installation paying homage to the area’s emblem, ‘The Elm Leaf’.

Strategically positioned at the southern end of Marylebone Lane, adjacent to the junction with Wigmore Street, this installation serves not merely as an aesthetic embellishment but as a symbolic tribute to the profound heritage and identity of the village.

Drawing from the Past: The Legacy of the Elm Tree

The genesis of this installation finds inspiration in the narrative of resilience embodied by London’s oldest surviving elm tree, set on Marylebone High Street.

With roots tracing back through the annals of time, this majestic tree has weathered the storms of history, enduring the ravages of World War II and the devastating Elm tree disease of the 1970s. Its unwavering presence stands as a testament to the village’s enduring spirit and its capacity to withstand even the most formidable challenges.

Executed with meticulous attention to detail, the installation encapsulates the essence of this legacy, featuring a verdant Elm leaf delicately embossed with ‘Marylebone Village’ in shimmering gold—a subtle yet poignant homage to the area’s deep-rooted affinity with the Elm tree.

Unveiling and Festivity

Amidst the gentle glow of the morning sun, the grand revelation of the installation unfolded, drawing together a kaleidoscope of community spirit and jubilation.

Leading the ceremony was none other than BBC broadcaster and local luminary of Marylebone Village, Jo Good, whose presence bestowed an aura of authenticity and warmth upon the proceedings.
