"These mulberries are in the grounds of what was Camberwell House Lunatic Asylum which was opened 1846. The hospital took over several large houses built in 1790. There are two other mature mulberry trees in Mistral Community Garden (Sceaux Gardens) on the opposite side of Peckham Road behind UAL buildings which were once more of those large 1790s houses."
