Dr. Johnson's Summer House~

Situated at the rear of Kenwood Garden originally, where it was relocated in 1968 from Streatham.

It was officially opened by Mrs. Harold Sebag-Montefiore, the wife of the then chairman of the Greater London Council's art and recreation committee.

It originally stood in the garden of Thrale Place, Streatham and was found derelict in a garden at Knockholt in 1962.

Unfortunately, the summerhouse was burnt down some years ago but the concrete slab remains with two benches, where the visitor can relax and ponder artistic thoughts!
