Catherine Place

Introduction

Catherine Place is a 19th century communal garden built in 1776 to the design of John Wood the younger. The garden is not open to the public but can easily be seen from the road.

The garden of Catherine Place is now divided into two rectangular sections, both enclosed by wire fencing. Both sections are informally planted with small trees and shrubs.

The central garden area was described as slightly neglected at the time of the last survey (1984).

History

Catherine Place was completed in 1776 to the design of John Wood the younger. The planting in the central garden area appears to be much later than this.
