On 30th May 1997 the London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust held a Study Day on the gardens of Canons. It took place at the North London Collegiate School for Girls, which is partly housed in the mid-eighteenth century mansion built by William Hallett on the site of the Duke of Chandos’s earlier palace. Of the original extensive garden and park, much has disappeared beneath housing estates; but a considerable portion survives as the grounds of the school and as the adjoining public Canons Park.
