The Garden

Ridgmount Gardens is a residential garden occupying a lengthy strip of land opposite the imposing Ridgmount Mansions, a Victorian-era apartment building. Stretching from Chenies Street to Torrington Place, a path follows this narrow garden through a series of miniature lawns, interspersed by herbaceous borders. A planting programme has seen the development of mixed herbaceous borders and a woodland glade area while a new sunny border by Chenies Street is now well established. There are also ornamental birdbaths at either end of the garden.
