Humphrey Repton in Bucks

The Haddenham Village Society is hosting a public meeting on Wednesday evening, 10th April, featuring Dr. Sarah Rutherford, who lives in Longwick — a garden historian and chair of Bucks Gardens Trust.

Her talk will be on 'Humphry Repton in Buckinghamshire'

Repton was the best-known garden designer in England at the time of the Napoleonic wars, the successor of Lancelot "Capability" Brown and as influential on the development of English gardens as Henry Wise, Brown or Joseph Paxton. He designed or advised on a number of Buckinghamshire gardens, including Shardeloes and Bulstrode.

Dr Sarah Rutherford is a distinguished garden historian, author of a number of books on the subject including the National Trust book on Lancelot Brown. She lives in Longwick and is Chair of the Bucks Gardens Trust; she edited a recent book on Repton in Buckinghamshire which incorporated research by members of the Trust.

The meeting commences at 8.00pm in the Community Library.
