Behind the Church of the Knights’ Templar (next to the Master’s Garden – see separate entry) a very secret vegetable and cutting garden has been created. Wander through courtyards and cloistered areas of barristers’ chambers to discover Elm Court, where major replanting was completed earlier this year. In Fountain Court, where Charles Dickens sought inspiration for scenes in Pickwick Papers and Great Expectations, there are two fine mulberry trees to admire. In the main garden there is a fine medieval hall, where the first-recorded performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night took place. This forms a spectacular backdrop for a terrace of mixed shrubs and roses and a seasonal planting scheme, with lawns sweeping down to the River Thames.
