Lords Cricket Ground - Coronation Garden
We have been fortunate enough to work with a number of organisations over the years, the famous Lords Cricket Ground being one.
The Lords cricket ground in North West London is the setting for some of the best cricket in the world. In their grounds are the Coronation Gardens, which house the famous statue of W.G. Grace, the famous English amateur cricketer (18 July 1848 – 23 October 1915), as well as many memorial benches and the Thomas Lord memorial roller.
The gardens were created to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 and a British Oak was planted in the grounds. A tree bench was originally installed around the oak and, many years on, the tree had out grown it and was beginning to show signs of age.
The beautiful gardens are a popular picnic area for members, so Lords wanted to provide more seating, in addition to the conventional teak garden bench. They also wanted to replace the original smaller bench in this tranquil garden, whilst continuing to feature the British ‘Coronation’ Oak in the centre of the garden.
