Roof garden at Golden Lane Estate opens for first time in years

Great Arthur House’s roof garden, at the heart of Golden Lane Estate opened for only the second time in twenty five years today. Although the steps are broken and the wood rotten, it remains everything a roof garden should be, an elegant place for quiet contemplation and a great place to view the capital. The first picture shows laser-cut bunting of Great Arthur House made especially for the event by Anna Parkinson, the second shows the two floors of the roof garden with pond, pergola and concrete planters waiting to be restored.
