St Mary's Churchyard, which re-opened in May 2008, is the first part of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle. An underused green space was landscaped, a children's playground was put in and three cycle racks were installed (see #14036). Local cyclists called them "cricket stumps" saying they were not fit for purpose. (They did not enable both wheels to be locked to the rack or support a bike. Additionally they had been installed in a line rather than parallel, which further reduced their usefulness.) After complaints from the local cycling campaign - Southwark Cyclists - the original racks were removed and replaced by these four smart Sheffields in early November 2008.
