Barnsbury Square

Barnsbury Square in Islington is a typical patch of green space in the city. Unremarkable, except when you recall that so many streets and communities don’t have any.

It features a rosebed and woodland planting. Most importantly, it’s a space for residents and visitors to relax and mingle. A shed is open twice a week to serve tea, coffee and chats. There are also gardening sessions to help preserve the square and community cohesiveness. It showed signs of the recent heatwave but with a drop of rain would be a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon with the neighbours

This kind of square is never going to make the headlines on Open Garden Squares weekend, but it’s important for locals throughout the year.
