The Garden

Over time, the church garden at St Peter’s Bethnal Green has been a parade ground, schoolyard and cholera pit. Now, it is a vibrant community garden bounded by 200-year-old London plane trees. The church building itself is surrounded by allotments and ornamental flowerbeds and these are tended by volunteer gardeners. The private garden at the Vicarage will once again open its ‘secret garden door’ leading visitors into a peaceful haven and meeting place which has been brought back into use over the last seven years.
