Event description
Late Summer Drinks: Future Plans and Tour of Sydney Gardens

About this Event

Join us for late summer drinks and tour of Sydney Gardens, Bath with Keith Rowe FLI [the project manager for Bath and NE Somerset Council] will be joined by the Director of Greenhalgh Landscape Architecture, Ian Greenhalgh CMLI [https://www.greenhalghla.com/people.]

The Grade II registered Sydney Gardens were designed in the late 18th Century, and became Jane Austen's local park when she moved to the city. The Georgian park has fallen into decline, has now received Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) money of £2.74m to help with restoration

Keith will introduce the project and Ian will cover the design challenges and solutions. The project includes exploring elements of restoration, new interventions and enhancements.
