The Garden Landscape Guide

St Dunstan in the East Church Garden

The bombed ruins of a medieval church and Wren Tower made into a charming scene by imaginative planting of wall chrubs and climbers and an effective fountain. An outstanding example of a small City space, which makes the maximum use of scarce resources. Designed by the City of London Architects and Parks Departments in 1971. It won a Landscape Heritage Award in 1976. Off Roehampton Lane.

    A beautiful place to sit and let the hustle bustle of the nearby city pass by.
    I first became aware of this place in the early 60s, when it was the setting for a Sci-fi film. Since then it has become a place of beauty.
