The Garden

Rainham Hall, nestling in the heart of Rainham village on the far eastern fringes of London, is surrounded by a contrasting landscape of big skies, wild marshland and thriving industry. The gardens, located to the rear of the Hall, comprise nearly three acres and feature an orchard, herbaceous borders and woodland play area. Thanks to the efforts of volunteers and the community gardener over the last few years, an exciting transformation has been taking place. Many new projects are taking shape, including the creation of a small amphitheatre, hugel bed and a bosquette art walk. This green oasis in the heart of Rainham is constantly evolving.

Community Gardener: Jesse Lock
