Kensington Gardens Vicinity, London
Kensington Gardens Vicinity, London
Cradle Walk (a.k.a. The Bowery), an arched arbour of red-twigged lime with arched viewpoints, surrounds the Dutch sunken garden in Kensington Palace gardens. These shaded ‘cloisters’ and the gardens were laid out in 1908, or perhaps more accurately they were ‘re-established’ for Edward VII, re-creating the formal gardens that existed at Kensington Palace in the C17th. Kensington Gardens were once part of Hyde Park until William IV enclosed the area as the gardens for Kensington Palace. The trees have been coppiced or stooled, meaning that they have been cut back to the ground. This preserves the original tree stock and allows new stems to be trained over the new framework of the bower.
