Derelict scrub-land has been transformed into a 20th century-themed urban oasis, complete with a multi-storey 70s caravan fitted out as a historic stately home.
Breaker’s Yard “pocket garden” at the back of Hackney’s oldest home, Sutton House, is one of 100 small green spaces being transformed across London as part of a City Hall initiative.
It was created by award-winning gardener Daniel Lobb and arts-based educational charity The House of Fairy Tales, and includes Lobb’s The Grange caravan sculpture, which will serve as a story-telling space.
The garden in the former car breakers’ yard also boasts an ice cream van, illustrated by Sir Peter Blake’s daughter, Rose Blake.
The garden at the National Trust run Sutton House, in Homerton High Street opened to the public on Tuesday August 12. Entrance to the garden is free.
