A new 'urban garden' has been created at the end of a dead-end street just yards from the busy New Kent Road.
18 months ago Stephen Hall built a full-scale replica of Trafalgar Square's empty 'fourth plinth' outside the Cul de Sac London gallery in County Street, sandwiched between the BP petrol station on the New Kent Road and the Globe Academy.
The piece – entitled Phantom – will be replicated next year at a public art festival in Munich.
Now, with the help of Veolia Environmental Services, the gallery has created a lawn and mini-garden in the space between the plinth and the eastern end of County Street.
This new addition to the neighbourhood was marked on Saturday by the first County Street Festival which included visual art, capoeira and music.
The festival was supported by Arts Council England.
