Lady Llangattock and Open Spaces. Lady Llangattock, who was accompanied by Lord Llangattock, dedicated to the public two open spaces in London situated on either side of the New Kent-ioad-tbe Paragon and Portland- place Gardens. There is, probably, more need for such open spaces here than in any other district in London, for within a radius of half a. mile of these two small plots 50,000 people live and work. The Paragon was formerly a crescent of twelve houses, and when these were demolished Lord Llangattock offered a plot of some 4,000 square yards to the Metropolitan Public Gardens Associa- tion for £ 3,400, towards which he contributed £ 1,000. The London County Council gave 91,700, St. George's Vestry, £600, and St. Mary's, Newington, the balance. Portland-place open space, covering 525 square yards, has been leased for eighty years to St. George's Vestry by the Trustees of St. Bartholomew's Hospital for the nominal rent of Is. per annum. The grounds are laid out as flower gardens, with walks and when Lady Llangattock declared them open crowds streamed in, while the Surrey Military Band played Reminiscences of England."
