This Peabody housing estate, built in 1871, is listed grade II. The community garden was imaginatively designed in 2013 to make use of a disused tarmac courtyard. It comprises 14 raised beds, which residents use for growing food and nectar-rich plants.

The garden is entered by an enchanting planted courtyard, with fruiting hedge and herb plants. It has played host to gardening clubs, theatre performances and bike workshops and is run by a local beekeeping resident (yes, there will be kids' bee suits to try on!), with the support of residents on the Peabody Blackfriars and surrounding estates/housing lands.
