You'll be able to find out more about the site if you visit Southwark's Local Studies library
, off Borough High Street
The part of Potters which is closest to Tooley Street
was formerly the churchyard for St Olave's church, futher along the road (it was on the site where the 1920s headquarters for the Hay's Group now stands; you can read a bit about the church on a plaque on the wall of the building, nearest London Bridge Hospital, IIRC). Unless they have recently been moved, if you look behind the bushes on the right hand side of the park as you go in, you'll see some of the old gravestones leaning up against the wall.
