The Gibberd Garden

This beautiful garden is located near to the new town of Harlow in Essex. It is almost a secret garden, not too many locals even know of its existence. This was the home of Sir Frederick Gibberd he was the modernist architect & planner of Harlow New Town. He acquired this site back in 1957 and worked to remodel the gardens with streams, pools, waterfalls there are avenues of trees, lawns interspersed with lots of sculptures & ceramics. The layout is fully established and full of surprises. You can see the full details on their website The Gibberd Garden.
