Planting out, Compton Terrace
The employee of the Borough of Islington is seen preparing the flowerbeds for the spring.
There have been gardens here in front of Compton Terrace for over 200 years: the houses were designed by Henry Leroux in 1805 as a row of villas either side of a Union Chapel, and completed in 1830. In 1823, a management committee was set up, and the 'paddock or grassplot' in front of the villas dressed as a 'pleasure ground'. The terrace and gardens were part of the Marquess of Northampton's estate until the 1920s, when ownership passed to Islington Borough Council. Several of the houses were destroyed by a wartime bomb at Highbury Corner nearby. The terrace remains a highly select address.
