Plaque

Harvey Hinds

Inscription

In memory of Councillor Harvey Hinds, champion of Burgess Park and education, leisure and recreation in Southwark.

Site: Chumleigh Gardens (4 memorials)

SE5, Burgess Park, Chumleigh Gardens

Chumleigh Gardens is a delightful, hidden away, gem.

In our photo, the Hinds and Chumleigh plaques are either side of the white door, left and right respectively. The Market Gardens plaque is on the railings just outside our photo, to the right. The WW1 memorial stone is inside the railings but just outside our photo, to the left. The Hinds plaque was almost entirely hidden by foliage so our gratitude goes to our magnificent greensperson without whom our close-up photos would not have been possible.

Chumleigh Gardens was established in 1995, in the grounds of the former Female Friendly Society Asylum.
