The Rookery HLF Bid

The Rookery at Streatham Common is a Grade 2 Listed Garden on the register of Historic England. It was from redevelopment through a fundraising campaign led by local resident, Stenton Covington in 1912. It was presented to the London County Council, redesigned, and opened to the public as a lovely municipal garden in 1913.  As some of our readers might recall, a centenary event in 2013 commemorated these efforts and 100 years of enjoyment of the garden by the public.
