This award-winning garden (one of a pair) was created on the historic site of the churchyard of St Laurence Pountney and the College of Corpus Christi, dating from the 12th century. Both were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666 and not rebuilt.

Privately owned, this unique space combines a traditional style of parterre planting with a more contemporary design. A small, secluded area is planted with nectar-rich flowers and naturalistic in style. The wisteria walkway and espalier apple and pear trees echo the formality, while the textural hard landscaping contrasts well with the perfect grass lawn.

Tombs and headstones are woven into the garden design, hidden among various ferns. Vegetables and flowers are grown in planters with a special emphasis on plants to improve air quality and increase biodiversity into the City.
