The Garden

The gardens are named after the family home of Miss Jane Benyon of Gledhow Hall in Yorkshire, who married landowner Captain Robert Gunter in the 19th century. The area was originally filled with market gardens and there was once a thriving village located between Gledhow and Bina Gardens. 

The site was later developed by James Gunter, who founded a property empire on the proceeds of his celebrated bakery business.

The clean microclimate has nourished some of the oldest and healthiest trees in London with a range of interesting wildlife, including a variety of rare bird species.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr Robert Ker, the gardens now belong to the residents.
