Gibberd Gardens

A tranquil garden on the outskirts of Harlow designed by Sir Frederick Gibberd, the planner of Harlow new town, who filled the grounds with sculptures, ceramic pots and architectural salvage from 1972 until his death in 1984. The garden has many aspects - formal lawns, flower beds, a brookside walk with a waterfall, a wild garden with a tangle of paths where children love to hide, a gazebo with a formal pond, an island fort to defend with a drawbridge onto it and an arboretum of young trees.
