Site: Keib Thomas bust (1 memorial)

SE5, Burgess Park, Chumleigh World Garden

These gardens are rather hidden and finding them was like discovering a little maze of secret gardens. We've since learnt that this is the Chumleigh World Garden, with plants and landscaping designed to reflect the diversity of the surrounding population of this highly cosmopolitan portion of London.
