Tradescant’s Retreat -the courtyard and garden area at the rear of the library which was developed by Friends of TSL with funding from Lambeth Council’s Ward Purse -will soon be open to the public.
A new entrance gate will be installed at the side, the library door modified to allow access to the library, and a CCTV camera fitted for security. This development will tie in with the recent renovation of the adjoining square in Wilcox Close, creating a larger and more agreeable public space.
This much needed improvement has been made possible by a grant from CLS Holdings plc, a leading property investment company which is active in the local area in Bondway, Wandsworth Road, Miles Street and Vauxhall Cross.
Work is due to start in July, with completion planned for August.
