An old (200 year?) mulberry is in the gardener's yard by the tennis courts and wall. This is not accessible to the public except on forging walks held regularly summer. The recently started GMH orchard has a young white and a black mulberry. Managed with support from Urban Orchard Project. The old tree is in a confined space and seems to date from when the park was the grounds of the Bethlehem Hospital from 1815.

Public transport: Southwark, Waterloo, or Lambeth North tube.
