Lloyd Park Sharing Heritage, Victorian gardens.

The Registry Office in Grove Road E17 used to be the vicarage for a St Stephen’s Church. I was looking at the garden today and fancied it was Victorian in design and possibly in history. But no. It’s a 1996 garden and under the flower beds are the remains of the foundations of the church. There’s an ugly modern building called St Stephen’s around the corner. Grove Road has some beautiful houses and fronts some of which are called “villa”.

Today the rear garden as it’s called, which was built as a backdrop for wedding photos and is now a wildlife refuge, was past its best.
