In 1811 when George became Prince Regent, leases on farmland to the north of London expired and architect John Nash put forward a plan to build some 50 detatched villas in a parkland setting with elegant terraces around 3 sides and a central circle. Only 8 villas were built and most of these have been lost since, Even some of the terraces were at risk following WWII damage and neglect. Fortunately the restoration rather than redevelopment option was chosen.


Ideal for picnics or there are cafes in the park and in Baker Street
