Lilliput Lane's "Temple Bar folly" is based on the Wren's gateway of that name which is now between St Paul's and Paternoster Square in London
Temple Bar was one of the gates through which people and traffic had to pass. It originally stood where Fleet Street now meets the Strand, the bar was first mentioned in 1293. It stood outside of the Temple law chambers and was alway associated with the "Bar". It is the only surviving gateway to the City it was removed and re-erected in Theabalds park in Hertfordshire, where it stood neglected for many years. The Temple Bar was finally returned to the City of London. funded by the corporation of London to the tune of over 3.0m. The reconstruction of Temple Bar on an empty site next to St Paul's Cathedral, was completed in November 2004. There are four statues Charles I, Charles II, James I and Anne of Denmark they were carved by John Bushnell and have now been restored in the main alcoves of Temple Bar, and now the only traffic that passes through the gateway is on foot
