Collingham Gardens (above) and Harrington Gardens (right) have 29 highly individual Grade II* listed houses, designed by the team Sir Ernest George and Harold Peto and built between 1880 and 1888. The houses were inspired by German and Flemish buildings that George had seen during his travels in Europe.
