Tower Hamlets’ Heritage Resource

London Borough of Tower Hamlets, 2010


In addition to the resources identified above, Tower Hamlets also contains some important parks, gardens and open spaces that are not designated. For example, the Borough has two historic playgrounds – the Henry Moore Play sculpture in Dora Street and the playground at the foot of Balfron Towers (potentially designed by Goldfinger) – and a number of city farms. It also contains an important cemetery – the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, which was opened in 1841, and which is one of London’s Magnificent Seven Cemeteries.
