Gardens of the Excalibur Estate in Catford

Bro. Peter Kindersley has directed a film for the Garden Museum celebrating the gardens of the Excalibur Estate in Catford, South London, presented by Matthew Wilson, garden designer, and writer.

The Excalibur Estate is an estate of prefab bungalows begun in 1946 for families bombed out of their homes. For many it was a chance to make a garden; seventy years later, the Excalibur Estate is as rich in horticulture and biodiversity as any hectare of London. But the Excalibur is being demolished and the gardens vanishing.
