The Gibberd Garden

On the outskirts of Harlow there is a garden full of beauty, peace and tranquility. It is a wonderful place to stroll and be inspired. Every turn reveals another aspect or work of art, for this garden was created by Sir Frederick Gibberd, the planner of Harlow new town, who designed the garden and filled the grounds with sculptures, ceramic pots and architectural salvage from 1972 till his death in 1984. The garden has many aspects – formal lawns, flower beds, a brookside walk with a waterfall, a wild garden, a formal pond and an island fort.
