All Saints West Dulwich
Our church garden was designed and planted in 2013 as part of the ongoing re-development of All Saints Church, following an extensive fire in 2000.
Architect Tim Gough of Austin Winkley & Associates and award-winning horticulturalist Noel Kingsbury, who has worked with master plantsman Piet Oudolf, created a contemporary plan for the garden to provide year-round texture and colour. They are best known for what is broadly called an 'ecological or naturalistic approach to garden design'.
At All Saints Church, we wanted to create a garden with a simple beauty and harmony that reflects and complements its stunning internal space. The garden is a space for quiet contemplation and for community gathering. It also incorporates discreet spaces for the burial of ashes and so provides a place of peaceful remembering.
We hope that being part of OGSW will enable many more people to discover and enjoy this recent and still little-known gem of an urban community garden.
Noel Kingsbury. Gardeners: Lesley Hopwood and Gianluca Gardin.
