The Garden

The gardens here form a triangle at the junction of three roads and were originally laid out as part of plans for an early Edwardian estate.

The planting scheme comprises informal groupings of shrubbery set around a lawn. Each autumn more bulbs are planted to increase the spring impact and now autumn bulbs are planned. 

The local residents' association continues to raise money for railings around the green and additional trees for the surrounding tree-lined streets, and to promote use of the green as a focus for communal activities.
