Starting at the Angel Islington this walk is an opportunity to see a variety of gardens alongside an extremely broad range of architectural styles including Georgian, French Mechanical, Gothic, Arcadian, Victorian artisan and Victorian superior Terrace and from intensely urban to completely secluded settings. Starting at the Angel Islington, the route includes, Islington Green, Gibson Square via Upper Street, Theberton Street, Milner Square, Richmond Avenue, Lonsdale Square, Barnsbury Square, Thornhill Square and Thornhill Crescent. All these sites are close together and the route is level at first and then down hill. Each Square garden exhibits a different style of design and management.  If open, Barnsbury Wood Nature reserve may be included.  Barnsbury Wood is a remarkable small urban oasis completely surrounded by houses.  The walk ends at Caledonian Road.

Leader: Peter Sibley, Trustee LPGT
