The Calthorpe Project...

Once more Adrian and myself spent a relaxing hour at The Calthorpe Project just before making our routine visit to the Eastman Dental Hospital built by George Eastman of the Kodak Company for the research and treatment of dental health. Set beside the Eastman Dental Hospital on the Grays Inn Road in North London is the Calthorpe Community Garden Project. The hot and sunny weather brought out many nearby office workers to enjoy their lunches in this wonderful little oasis in the heart of central London. Its aim is to provide a safe green space for the whole community and all cultures. It was opened by the Mayor of London on the 29th September 1984 and is funded by the London Borough of Camden. Local people fought and won against office development and created these community gardens, play space and under fives area.
