  • New: House Watch

    Nice!

  • Regarding my Watch House 1825 tag, family and I recently discovered the park that contains it, after a trip to the nearby, excellent Garden Museum.

    I took a pic of the history of the site, as I found it fascinating.

  • It's always nice when you know it.

  • "Welcome to Old Paradise Gardens

    This site is located on an area of land once used from 1703 to 1853 as a Burial ground for the Parish of Lambeth. The land was originally donated to the Parish by Thomas Tenison, Archbishop of Canterbury (1636-1715) to meet an urgent need for burial space. It was extended in 1816 but after becoming full was closed in 1853. A watch house was erected in 1825 on Lambeth High Street far holding the drunk and disorderly but was removed and its site is now marked with a commemorative stone.

    By 1980 it was becoming neglected and so the Vestry, a predecessor to Lambeth Council, converted it into a public garden, which was completed in 1884. Gravestones from the original burial space moved to boundary walls, with the original mortuary left standing. It was enlarged when the site of a glass bottle factory in Whitgift Street was purchased tor £700. Since the late 1970s Lambeth High Street Recreation Ground has been re-landscaped with grassy mounds, pergolas, shrubs spring bulbs, and a water feature and playground are also provided to play and relaxation."

    Oops

  • There's no text in lowbrows picture.

  • The reflectoporn was in itsbruce's picture.

    The text was in mashton's picture.

  • Well I was thinking I would go to Belsize Park, 'Watch House', but that isn't as convenient.

  • When you see it...

  • No mention of the watchhouse being used to hold the drunk and disorderly of the parish?

  • More clues please.

  • Group of houses. Watch.

  • So, House Watch, Watch House, houses, Watch.

  • How's "House Watch"?

    Watch how...

    What? Tch!

  • This is going well.

  • The sarcasm is profound with this one.

  • Got it. Great clue! Shame I can't get over there for my first tag.

  • Some people would choose to Watch Mr Rodger's'.
