Event Details

 

The Gardens Trust Winter Lecture Series, Birmingham and London, 2017

London:  The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EL

Birmingham:  The Birmingham & Midland Institute, 9 Margaret Street, Birmingham, B3 3BS

 

Paula Henderson, PhD, FSA, Independent architectural and garden historian

The Gardens and Park of Bramshill, Hampshire

6.30 pm, Wednesday 25 January, The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street

Bramshill, one of the finest Jacobean mansions, was built between 1605-25 by Edward, Baron Zouche, a courtier and passionate horticulturalist. Evidence suggests that many of the most dramatic surviving features at Bramshill date from Zouche’s ownership, but these are overlaid with alterations from subsequent centuries.   The new owners commissioned ‘statements of significance’ for the house and landscape in an attempt to define what should be retained for an appropriate historical context for both.

Brian Dix, Consultant garden archaeologist

Awakening from Slumber: Recent archaeology and restoration at Boughton House Gardens, Northamptonshire.

6.30 pm, Wednesday 8 February, The Birmingham & Midland Institute, 9 Margaret Street, Birmingham, B3 3BS

The French-inspired gardens and landscape created at Boughton House by the first and second Dukes of Montagu in the sixty years up to the middle of the eighteenth century are the best of their kind in Britain.  The formal layout escaped the fate of many elsewhere when the house ceased to be a permanent home, leading to a prolonged period of benign neglect.  Brian Dix is closely involved in their current restoration by the present Duke of Buccleuch, a descendant of the earlier dukes.

Kate Felus, Independent garden historian and consultant

The Secret Life of the Georgian Garden

6.30 pm, Wednesday 8 March, The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street

Much is known about 18th century designed landscapes but until now very little has been written about how people actually used the parks and gardens created by the likes of Capability Brown. In her talk, based on her recent book, Kate will uncover the secret life of the Georgian garden, discussing how landscapes were used from dawn to dusk and beyond. She will describe how the Georgian upper and middle classes sailed on lakes, sipped syllabubs in grottoes and slipped into the shrubberies for illicit liaisons, amongst other activities.

 

Paul Howarth, Research Volunteer & Website Manager, Kent Gardens Trust

The diverse heritage of Medway parks and gardens

6,30 pm, Wednesday 22 March, The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street

Paul Howarth of Kent Gardens Trust will speak on the broad range of gardens researched for their Medway Project,  including the gardens of Rochester Cathedral (where there are associations with Gertrude Jekyll), Eastgate House garden in the Arts & Crafts style by Edward Guy Dawber, and the proposed restoration of the Tudor garden at Restoration House.

 

Karen Fitzsimon, Chartered Landscape Architect, Garden Historian and Horticulturist

Drawing on Denmark – the mid-to-late twentieth-century  landscape practice of Preben Jakobsen in Britain

6.30pm, Wednesday 5 April, The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street

Karen’s talk will elucidate on her 2016 research trips to Denmark in preparation for her monograph on Jakobsen, during which she retraced his footsteps from his childhood home to the Royal Academy of Fine Art, Copenhagen. On the way she explored landscapes designed by his mentor Prof. Carl Th. Sørenson and those by designers whom he admired, such as Sven Hansen. She will consider their influence on Jakobsen’s practice in the UK.
