Walk in Brockwell Park Walled Garden

A lovely hidden garden at the heart of Brockwell Park, the Walled Garden once formed the kitchen garden for old Brockwell Hall, the predecessor to the Hall which still stands at the top of the hill in the park.

It is a secluded spot where visitors are found in hidden corners, sitting on quiet benches and reading, or meeting the birds and squirrels who dart around. Even at this time of year, it is rich with colour thanks to the hard work of the gardeners who tend to it.

Your author understands that the garden was transformed under the supervision of horticulturist and first Superintendent of London County Council Parks Department, Lt-Colonel J.J. Sexby, after whom a garden in Peckham Rye Park is named.
