The Garden

The community garden at No 15 Knight's Walk is a small pocket of green amongst an estate of bungalows (designed by architect George Finch in 1969), hidden from the bustle of nearby Elephant and Castle. Residents have transformed this garden - within a tranquil, secluded courtyard - into a welcoming community space for gardeners and novices alike. There are rose borders and planters supporting vegetable growing and gilding the estate pathways. Established as a temporary community space in 2017, local residents and organisations meet weekly to practise everything from yoga to bread-making, to arts and crafts - a mural even decorates the garden wall.
