Wheelchair access to main lawn only; some very narrow paths
A half-acre London walled town garden behind a handsome Victorian house c.1830, splendidly designed by the owner for low maintenance, but with lots of interest. Tunnels arbour, screens abound, providing inspiration for busy garden-owners who would still like to have an interest outside the house. A series of nineteenth-century brick-built arches across the width of the garden separates it into two compartments. The area near the house is formal with a lawn, the area beyond screen much less so, with fine compartments and features. Secret paths and unexpected views make this a magical place for children. Much use is made of evergreens and there are some exquisite shrubs, including a row of camellias down one wall and a massive Hydrangea petiolaris with a trunk as thick as a boxer's biceps. There are many species and varieties of a particular genus - five varieties of box and even more of ivies, for example. The owner describes it as a gold, green, yellow and red garden. The canal feature was restructured and enhanced into a water garden in autumn 1996. With snowdrops in February and exceptional camellias and magnolia in the spring, the garden has been open for the NGS for 60 consecutive yrs!
