The Garden

The original layout of the award-winning Collingham Gardens, remains amazingly intact. The simple and symmetrical design incorporates wide lawns, curving gravel paths and tall plane trees and reflect Harold Peto's naturalistic style. Shrub beds frame the open, central and circular lawn, with each bed featuring a Japanese cherry tree, which ensure a wonderful display of springtime blossom. In the 1880s Ernest George and Harold Peto, both highly regarded late Victorian architects, designed the Grade II* listed terraces which border the gardens. Amazingly, individual front and rear elevations were conceived for each house, helping to create an organic village feeling.

Gardener: Hamish Crawford, Joseph Jones and Partners in collaboration with the CGGC Gardening Officer.
