History

Sudbury Court has been in use since 300 AD.

Detailed Description

Anthony Walker (architect) has created an inward looking village and John Dejardin (landscape architect) has extended and enhanced the variety and scale of the architecture with planting throughout. Paths wind through a series of varied spaces formed by trees, shrubs, ground cover plants and rolling grassed areas. The rear areas have a wilder appearance and are planted with faster growing species to screen unsightly surrounding houses. In addition to the communal landscaped areas are three allotments and a greenhouse for keen gardeners.
