Return to Thornhill Road, turn right and continue on. The Albion pub on the left has accessible toilets. Continue on into Cloudesley Road. After the junction with Copenhagen Street, cross the road and the entrance to Culpeper Community Garden is on the right, just after a former pub. To avoid the steps, continue along Cloudesley Road, and enter via the gate in the railings on the right.


Named after the 17th-century herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, this secluded garden contains 46 different plots tended by local people and groups, growing a wealth of flowers, fruit and vegetables. There are also a communal lawn, ponds, rose pergola and wildlife areas. Open daily to the public, the project encourages the involvement of many disadvantaged groups, as well as children and young people.
