Ashburn Place Gardens

Ashburn Place Gardens (Kensington & Chelsea)

Summary

Ashburn Place is within the Courtfields area. The Court Fields were once part of the land held by Earl's Court Manor, but later owned by the Gunter family who had farms and agricultural land here. They began developing the area for housing from the late 1840s onwards although the northern part of their estate was undeveloped until the 1870s. Many of the street names reflect the Gunter family links with Yorkshire. The garden enclosure east of Ashburn Place has fine railings and gateway with lawn and mature trees.
