Question:

What links some of the tallest plane trees in London planted in 1870, a company that made pianos for Mozart and Beethoven, a secret passage that led to a Victorian market garden and a church that was sacrificed for the extension of the London underground railway?

Known as Little India because of its colonial links, it became home to writers, painters, financiers and other fine minds of the Victorian era.

Answer:

Cornwall Gardens: The Broadwood family sold their market garden for development from 1866 to 1879.

The trees, lawns and shrubs provide the tranquil and inspirational atmosphere of a woodland garden.

Gardener: David Ashton, One Two Tree
