This drawn plan shows the proposed housing development in the part of Kensington Garden west of Kensington Palace, also known as the Kitchen Gardens. The plan's title appears at top left with a compass star. The scale bar appears at bottom centre. Kensington Garden was originally attached to Nottingham House which was bought by William III in 1689 and turned into Kensington Palace. Queen Mary took a great interest in the gardens and had them landscaped by royal gardeners in formal Dutch patterns. The Dutch gardens were uprooted by order of Queen Anne, and replaced by Wise and Bridgeman's design, including the round pond, the Broad Walk and the Temple Lodge.
