The Tradescant Garden

The Cellarer’s Garden is at the east end of the St Augustine’s site.

In the early seventeenth century, there were gardens at St Augustine’s designed by John Tradescant, later a royal gardener and founder of Tradescant’s Ark. His son, another John Tradescant, was a King’s Scholar who also became a gardener and collector.

A new Tradescant Garden has been created as a memorial to former pupil HP ‘Tony’ Wortham. This is in the form of a knot garden, designed and constructed by Iain Bentley and Mark Collins, with Francis Pellett. It was formally opened in July 2011.
