Crowe’s Nest

Posted on

Crowe’s Nest is a children’s playground tucked away on the Hawes and Bennett Close estate. As chairman of the Hawes and Bennett Close Residents’ Association Barry Crowe was instrumental in obtaining LBH funding to re-develop a piece of waste land into this playground which local children named Crowe’s Nest in his honour.

Sadly Barry died in July 2009, but his memory lives on in the form of a flowering cherry tree donated by the Northwood Residents’ Association. On Sunday 13th March 2011, Barry’s granddaughter unveiled a plaque dedicating the tree to Barry’s memory.
