Description

The crescent-shaped Cassland Gardens were laid out in the 1860s between a palace-fronted terrace of 1793 and a crescent of Victorian Italianate villas. The gardens are laid to lawn and surrounded by mature limes and London planes. In recent years the Friends of Cassland Gardens and Hackney Council have been working together on restoring the gardens.
