Inventory Site Record

St Barnabas Church Garden (Kensington & Chelsea)

Brief Description

St Barnabas Church was built in 1825 designed by Lewis Vulliamy, and has a pleasant garden between the church and vicarage, with a beech hedge at the road boundary. The site is overlooked by the backs of Oakwood Court. This area was once part of the Holland House estate, which in the late C18th consisted of c.200 acres, but the original estate had once been nearly 500 acres, extending almost to Fulham Road. The development of the Addison Road area of the estate commenced from 1822 under the third Lord Holland, whose estate was by then running at a loss.
