Daily Photo: 10/06/2011 – Open Gardens

June 10, 2011 by  

Here’s a photo from one of the gardens that will be open to the public as part of the St Alfege Open Gardens restoration appeal.

A number of gardens are opening up this Saturday, with a different selection throwing open their back-doors the following week.

St Alfege will also be the starting point for the 1711 walk this Sunday morning. It’s been described as a “Pop-Up Baroque Church Crawl: a 17¼ mile walking route linking 12 of London’s finest Baroque churches (or, one case, its ruins).”

The event marks the tricentennial of the 1711 Act for Building Fifty New Churches. The walk starts at 9am and some participants will be wearing 18th century costumes.
