SITE DETAILS

Burney Street Open Space Greenwich

Summary

Burney Street Open Space is small garden created with money raised by local people that opened in 1981-2. An oak tree planted by the Duke of Edinburgh has since died (2006: not yet replanted). A red granite obelisk records the creation of the garden and a plaque to a milkman whose shop was on the site on the corner of Burney Street/Gloucester Place. At the other end of the street is Poet's Corner, named for C Day Lewis who lived in Greenwich in the 1950s and '60s, a small shrubbery with path and seating.
