Ashley Gardens

> Enlarge picture
The gardens, which lie between the two red brick mansion blocks that comprise Ashley Gardens, provide a welcome relief from the towering striped buildings of the area. The long rectangular strip, well planted with trees, shrubs and ivies, is visible from Thirleby Street through the railings and is kept in excellent condition. Ashley Gardens and Morpeth Terrace are some of the earliest purpose-built blocks of flats in London.
