Paragon Gardens 8848

Greater London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Improvements have been carried out since 2009 as part of wider improvements to the Salisbury Row neighbourhood. The bandstand no longer remains.

History

This was originally the communal garden of The Paragon, a late C18th crescent. When the houses were demolished and replaced by a Board School the garden survived and was purchased by the Vestry of St George the Martyr. It was laid out as public garden by the MPGA and once had a bandstand. Part of the site was later lost as a result of road schemes when the Bricklayers Arms Flyover was built in 1970 although a strip of land was added to the west as compensation and planted with shrubs.
