Snaresbrook Memorial Gardens (Redbridge)

Brief Description

The late C18th Snaresbrook House can be seen beyond its early C19th gate piers on the Woodford Road entrance, and its early C19th White Lodge is visible from Snaresbrook Road. A small rectangular Memorial Garden was created on part of the grounds, and a plaque erected by The Royal British Legion commemorates the opening of the garden by Cllr Richard Hoskins, JP, Mayor of Redbridge on 21 May 1997, sponsored by Weston Homes plc. Within the garden is Snaresbrook War Memorial and planting consists of trees, shrubs and a number of circular flower beds, gravel paths and a birdbath on fluted column, with iron railings and gate to Snaresbrook Road.

Full Site Description

The Memorial Garden is pleasant, particularly due to its proximity to Eagle Pond and view of Snaresbrook Crown Court (q.v.). Snaresbrook House and grounds are now privately owned and not publicly accessible, although part of the garden can be viewed from the Memorial Garden through the iron railings that separate the public garden from the main garden beyond.
