More on John Evelyn's Sayes Court

Plan of Sayes Court garden in 1692
The blog Depford Is reports on a Council for British Archaeology press release concerning the on-going issues surrounding development of Convoy's Wharf in Depford and threats to the adjacent remains of Sayes Court. 

The blog London's Lost Garden which is dedicated to Sayes Court (from which the above picture is taken) has an interesting piece which also mentions a Study Day all about Evelyn and his garden being hosted at the Linnæan Society on 25 April and organised by the London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust  and the Garden History Society.  There is more information and a booking form on the Garden History Society website.
