The History of the Garden and Grounds at Wimpole Hall – Alison Moller
February 4, 2019 @ 2:15 pm - 4:30 pm£5
Alison Moller is a member of the HGT Research Group and recently completed an MA in Garden and Landscape History
Situated near Royston in Cambridgeshire, the landscape and setting of Wimpole Hall are a fine example of how the evolution of the garden over many centuries can be traced on the ground in conjunction with archaeological and documentary evidence. Vestiges of the Medieval landscape survive, but it is the 17th and 18th century developments that are perhaps the most interesting. Many of the great names in Garden History worked at Wimpole: London and Wise, Charles Bridgeman, Robert Greening, Lancelot Brown, William Eames, Sir John Soane and Humphry Repton all made contributions, which will be examined in this talk.
Tea/Coffee will be served from 2.15pm and each talk will cost £5 per person. Reservation and payment for places on the four Talks should be made to Mrs Liz Carlin, using this form.
