These award-winning gardens display Harold Peto’s naturalistic style, featuring tall plane trees placed on lawns as if survivors from an ancient local woodland. Exceptionally, the gardens’ original layout remains intact: a simple and symmetrical plan, with wide lawns and curving gravel paths. The open central circular lawn is framed by shrub beds, each with its own Japanese cherry tree, producing magnificent springtime blossom displays. Ernest George and Harold Peto, both notable late Victorian architects, designed the Grade II* listed terraces bordering the gardens in the 1880s. Remarkably, individual front and rear elevations were conceived for each house, creating an organic village atmosphere. After Collingham Gardens, Peto moved on to become arguably the greatest Edwardian landscape designer.
