A house called the Rookery was here on this site with a spa, but when the spa declined in popularity the Rookery's formal gardens and spa were bought and turned into a public garden. It was the local people, who bought the land for £3,000, that saved this astonishing place. A three-acre garden was built, including a water garden, formal gardens, a stunning white garden, herbaceous borders, an English garden, fantastic trees, ponds, and much more. Let me take you on a walk around this tiered and secret garden.

|I must have passed by this place a thousand times, and never knew it was there, which makes me sad. Thanks for showing me another lovely corner in 'my' part of London.|

|Dear Hetty, I know not a lot of people do! It is a fantastic place and has been a secret Garden for years, yet why I do not know. My mother put a post on this and she has lived here for years and did not know about it either. If you wish for a quiet walk or a sit down and see the beauty, this is one place to go. I do hope to see you in Part 2 when the water gardens and a lot of other things show there glorious beauty as well.|
