The Garden Guide

New River Walk Garden

A linear park running for over half a mile through Canonbury following the course of the New River brought to London by Sir Hugh Middleton in 1613. It is only a few metres wide but is full of character. The walk has been reconstructed and replanted along the frontage of the Marquess Road estate. Bird life and leafy corners abound and paths are highly contrived but it has that indefinable Japanese quality which steers clear of the twee.
