Kate Banister and Tina Rowland are members of the HGT Research Group. Tina Rowland has recently researched the gardens and grounds at Presdales, Ware and High Leigh, Hoddesdon

James Pulham and Son of Broxbourne in Hertfordshire were one of the most important firms of landscape designers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They were one of the main manufacturers of artificial rockwork, known as ‘Pulhamite’. The Pulhams specialised in water gardens and rock gardens – building cliffs, ravines, waterways, ferneries and grottoes – as well as manufacturing fountains, vases, urns, sundials and other garden ornaments. This lecture describes Pulhams’ known work at sites in Hertfordshire, including details of recent research and discoveries made about the gardens and grounds at Presdales and at High Leigh.

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
