Plan of Kensington Gardens and Kensington Town drawn by John Rocque, 1756
Rocque's plan shows the full extent of the work that Caroline of Anspatch, wife of George II, implemented at Kensington between 1727 and 1754. Charles Bridgman was responsible for creating among other things the Serpentine and the Round Pond. The drawing also shows the grand mansions along Kensington Gore and buildings along the High Street and Church Lane.
