Contemporary by Nature
Neatly tucked away off Fortescue Road, a typical London street of bay fronted Victorian terraces, is a new residential enclave where the best of contemporary architectural design blends sympathetically with its leafy location. The pitched roofs and gables mirror those of the area’s Victorian homes and the riverside workshops and studios so central to the history of the area. Fortescue Gardens has been designed with the natural features of the local landscape as a guiding inspiration. At its eastern boundary, the development blends with the Myrna Close Nature Reserve, an important habitat for wildlife where a mixture of elm, oak, sycamore, holly and dogrose create an oasis of natural calm.
Cut through by the Wandle River Valley, it is easy to see why the area around Colliers Wood was so attractive to artists and designers who drew their inspiration from the natural world.
The parks, recreation grounds and nature reserves that surround Fortescue Gardens provide a great setting for outdoor pursuits, walking and cycling. Wandle Park with its wide open meadows and tree lined pathways is just three minutes from the development on foot. It is here that the Wandle Trail cuts through Colliers Wood as it meanders along the course of the river.
Heading south, the trail cuts through National Trust property, Morden Hall Park. The estate covers over 125 acres either side of the river which is spanned by numerous ornate footbridges. Within the grounds are Morden Hall itself, Morden Cottage, two Snuff Mills and the restored Stableyard with a dog-friendly cafe, exhibition space, second-hand bookshop and Garden Centre.
Alongside the Wandle Trail there are many more parkland areas within a stone’s throw. Nearby Wimbledon Common and Putney Heath cover more than 1,140 acres and are a perennial favourite amongst South Londoners. This vast parkland truly comes alive in the summer months when crowds gather at the Crooked Billet pub, tucked away in an idyllic corner of the common, to enjoy great food and drink, good company and lazy evenings on the grass.
