The Gibberd Garden

The Gibberd Garden is a highly individual creation of Sir Frederick Gibberd, the master planner of Harlow New Town. It is sited on the side of a small valley, which slopes down to a brook. Occupying some 7 acres, the garden was planned as a series of rooms, each with its own character. The glades, pools and alleys provide a setting for some fifty sculptures, large ceramic pots, architectural salvage, a gazebo and even a moated children´s castle with a drawbridge. The garden has been described as `one of the most important in the history of the 20th century´.
