Pop up gardens at Redbridge Museum

Last summer a series of beautiful mini-gardens were outside Redbridge Central Library & Museum that had been inspired by local history.Redbridge Museum

These gardens were based on historic green sites in Redbridge. They had been created to show the history of gardens, parks and open spaces in Redbridge, from farms to grand 18th century country estates, Victorian suburban gardens and many more.

The gardens had  been created by Redbridge Museum and students from Wanstead High School, as part of a project in partnership with Valentines Gardens, Redbridge Nature Conservation and the Corporation of the City of London. The project was funded by Arts Council England.
