The gardens here form a triangle at the junction of three roads and were originally laid out as part of plans for an early Edwardian estate, now a conservation area.
The planting scheme comprises informal groupings of shrubbery set in a lawn. Thanks to the support of Lewisham council through their contractor's Glendale some of the laurels have been removed and replaced by more decorative shrubs. The spring bulb planting scheme has continued with the planting of more bulbs in the autumn of 2012.
The local residents' association continues to campaign for funds to upgrade the planting scheme - with some success - and to replace the chain-link fence by reinstating the boundary railings.
