The British Village in Abuja Nigeria

The British Village was built in 1993-4 to house the staff at the British High Commission and Passport Offices in the new capital city of Abuja in Nigeria.

Steve Ritson was employed by Jardin Landscapes (Nig) Ltd to design the hard landscape and planting for the newly constructed British Village which consisted of 22 detached houses and a large clubhouse and poolside area with a village green in the centre. The entire village was planted by creating an on-site nursery and propagating new plants from cuttings from the nearby British High Commission gardens which had previously been completed.
