Mayfield Crescent Croydon
Summary: The houses enclosing Mayfield Crescent were built c.1930 and provide a good example of private estate planning of the period. The open space was originally reserved as a simple grassed plot surrounded by post and single rail fence, and has evolved into a lawned enclave, bordered by privet hedge with central shrub planting. In each corner 3 flowering trees have been planted, including hawthorn and prunus.
