The award-winning Copperfield Street Community Garden has been cared for by local people for nearly 40 years. It was created from the rubble of a large Victorian church bombed during WW2. The garden lies along the aisle of the old church. It is still looked after and cared for entirely by volunteers for the enjoyment of all. Young, old, rich, poor, locals or visitors: everyone is welcome.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the buses, trains, traffic and crowds, it is a small but significant patch of green in an otherwise busy area. The garden is part of the Union Street Conservation Area.
