1 Priory Gardens, by E. J. May, 1880

1 Priory Gardens, Bedford Park

E. J. May


Turnham Green, London W4

This house has Dutch gables, a tall chimney stack, and other typical features of a Bedford Park house, including white joinery at the front. It is seen here from the side, where a plaque reads: "1 Priory Gardens 1880." Appropriately enough, the building now houses the headquarters of the Victorian Society, a very active group formed to protect the Victorian (and Edwardian) legacy in architecture and landscaping.
