This award-winning garden (one of a pair) was created on the historic site of the 12th century churchyard of St Laurence Pountney and the College of Corpus Christi - both were destroyed in the Great Fire 1666 and never replaced.
Privately owned, this unique space combines a traditional style of parterre planting with a more contemporary design. A secluded area is planted with nectar-rich flowers and naturalistic in style. The wisteria walkway and espalier fruit trees echo the formality, while the textural hard landscaping contrasts well with the perfect grass lawn.
Tombs and headstones are woven into the planting design which focuses on increasing biodiversity.
