Hidden behind the Crescent’s buildings and its high boundary wall, the garden is always a surprise to visitors. It’s the best part of an acre, faces due south and is sheltered from the north – making it ideal for tender plants and sun-worshippers alike. It consists of three lawns, two of which were once tennis courts, and ‘the woods’ that slope steeply down to the boundary wall on Polygon Lane. Since 2019 there have been a dozen hens in residence.
The garden is maintained by the residents, who are invited to help for a few hours on the first Sunday of each month.
