Butterfield Green 7692

London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

Butterfield Green is a small public park that takes its name from William Butterfield, the architect of St Matthias Church on Newington Green. An old footpath runs between Butterfield Green and blocks of flats. A community orchard was planted on the site by local people in 2007.

History

The area was first developed in the 19th century but the Green is surrounded by post-war council housing of the late 1940s/50s and the park was created when houses that occupied the sites of the various parts that make up the Green were demolished.

Visitor Facilities

The park is open from 7.30am - dusk (summer 9.30pm, winter 4pm).
