It must be still there!
I never thought much about them when I was walking to school. We were deeply unimpressed back in the day. We weren't really interested in plants or gardening, and there was always an unromantic aroma of cabbage.
But fast forward 40 years and I love plants! I love greenhouses. My MA final project was based on them. I love the patchwork of people's different plots, the structures (teepees and cold frames and old sheds), the idea of growing food locally, and the way that gardening sorts out your mental health.
So I went on a walk down memory lane. It was beautiful, and a revelation.
