Deptford Memorial Gardens

Deptford Memorial Gardens in Lewisham are described on London Gardens Online in 2011 as consisting of ‘…three strips of formal gardens laid out on raised ground between the main road on the south side and a row of mid-C19th paired houses. At the northern end is the WWI war memorial, a Portland stone obelisk with figures of a soldier and sailor, which was unveiled in 1921.

Luxmore Gardens in Lewisham

I am in Luxmore Gardens in Lewisham, beginning a new project in London. Because I need to walk I am going to visit the parks, nature reserves and green spaces in Lewisham. This will encourage me to go out and which will give me photography challenges!

London launches as the first National Park City with a Festival in July 2019 and I wondered what green spaces Lewisham offers. So I decided to make a list – it is always good to start with a list and look the project in the eye! It seems to be a very long list and I am starting with something unlikely – Luxmore Gardens in Lewisham!

Looking for inspiration in Greenwich Park

It has been a chilly, damp, grey day in London, one of those days when you don’t really want to do anything but know you ought to take some exercice. So I took myself to Greenwich Park to compare progress with the London Garden.
