The Water Gardens of Geoffrey Jellicoe – Kate Harwood

December 3, 2018 @ 2:15 am - 4:30 pm


Kate Harwood , HGT conservation team co-ordinator,member of the conservation committee of the Gardens Trust

Jellicoe was commissioned in 1947 to develop the New Town of Hemel Hempstead following a landscape appraisal by Sylvia Crowe. His design was not accepted and another design just for the water gardens was accepted much later. The gardens opened in 1962. This talk will look at the influences behind Jellicoe’s plans, his other water gardens and the Hemel Gardens in the New Towns context, and the decline and renaissance of the gardens under the HLF Parks Programme.

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
