The Garden

This private one-acre garden is named after Gledhow Hall in Yorkshire, the family home of Miss Jane Benyon, who married landowner Captain Robert Gunter in the 19th century. Gledhow Gardens was established on land forming the Gunter Estate, an area formerly owned by James and Robert Gunter. The clean microclimate has nourished some of London’s oldest and healthiest trees and encouraged a wide variety of interesting wildlife, including some rare bird species. The gardens now belong to the residents, thanks to the generosity of Dr Robert Ker and the trustees of the Gunter Estate.
