In the heart of Rottingdean, near Brighton, a charming garden with an interesting history delights locals, but most people who live outside the village wouldn't know it was even there. Hiding behind high walls, this council-maintained garden once belonged to Rudyard Kipling, who lived there from 1897 - 1902. In the latter part of the twentieth century the garden became neglected, but was rescued since 1980 by the Rottingdean Preservation Society, which still assists in its maintenance to this day. What a delight to discover a garden, free for all, planted and maintained so beautifully. If you are in the area it is well worth a visit!
