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.

|Dear Janice, my pleasure to share it with you and I am glad you enjoyed it, and hopefully we will see you in Part 2 in the water Gardens.
I have written 23 Articles on wonderful places like Eltham Palace etc., which belonged to King Henry VIII and others. Then in the 1930s had and Art Deco Palace built on the side.
Plus Winchester which used to be the Capital of England and the Cathedral that floats on oak logs and is 1000 years old.
They are all one my home page underneath the forums and anybody can access them. There are 1,471 parks in London and that does not include some of the Royal ones, so I have a long way to go, by foot!
Thank you for your most kind comments.
