On Tuesday 12th November Haddenham resident and leading economic historian and author, Sir Roderick Floud, will be marking the publication of his book 'An Economic History of the English Garden' with an illustrated talk "Legacies of English Gardens: Lakes, Central Heating and the Shard."
The technologies of dam-building, of central heating and of metal and glass buildings all have their origins in the gardens of the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Gardening creates beauty but also alters the way we live. In this illustrated short lecture, Roderick Floud will discuss how gardening has transformed our landscape, our townscape and our lives.
Roderick Floud, a former Trustee of Turn End Trust, is hosting the evening in support of the Trust. The talk is being held in Haddenham Youth and Community Centre (Woodways, next to the junior school) 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start. The talk will be followed with drinks.
Signed copies of 'An Economic History of the English Garden, kindly supplied by the Book House in Thame, will be available for sale.
Tickets are £6 (Under 15's Free) and this includes a glass of wine. Tickets are available here: (www.turnend.org.uk) and at turnendtrust.eventbrite.co.uk
