This is an ornamental garden on the corner of Edgware Road and Sussex Gardens that despite its name doesn’t contain any water.
In 1984 residents living near to the Oval cricket ground started growing vegetables on a plot of derelict land. Today, 30 years later, while the vegetables have long since vanished, the plot of land is a riot of planting that delights the eyes if you ever wander in.
If you come out of Cannon Street station stop and pause a moment, then look across the road. You might spy an insignificant side road sitting next to the modern steel ribbed building directly opposite. It’s worth taking a wander over and having a look – for the short road curves round a corner, and around there you will find one of London’s oldest church yards – and now a recently revamped public garden.
