Event Details

Lecture on Wednesday 6 March at 6.30pm (and linked visit on 11 July)

by Dr Sally Jeffery, Architectural and Garden Historian,


who will discuss her recent research on Hawksmoor's designs for Wray Wood, Castle Howard. .....................

Among documents formerly at Wilton House are four sketches for streams and rockwork attributed to Nicholas Hawksmoor which have recently been identified as projects for the garden in Wray Wood, Castle Howard. This naturalistic woodland garden was much admired by early visitors, who commented on its innovative features, including a cave, an artificial stream with cascades and rockwork, and much classical sculpture inspired by Ovid. Little now survives, but using these drawings and other records, a picture of the garden can be constructed, and Hawksmoor’s role in the design can be better appreciated.
