The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability has been on its beautiful elevated site on West Hill, Putney since 1863. There are views over north west and south west London. The grounds include an award-winning cloister garden and several patient gardens.
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown had a hand in designing the estate, as did another prominent landscape gardener, Humphry Repton.
The considerable role played by both Brown and Repton in the design of the grounds makes the gardens of great interest. Brown designed an open landscape of grass and trees, a lake and a home farm. Evidence of his original designs remain.
