To give Pleasure to the eye and Nourishment to the Mind: 18 Century Gardens and Pleasure grounds

by Richard Wheeler, the National Trust’s specialist in garden history

This will be a talk about the intended meaning of 18th-century gardens and their understanding.

With 39 years’ experience at the Trust and a brief that now extends across the country, Richard is an entertaining and extremely informative speaker.

(Please note that this is a change from the original programme: our original speaker for 3rd April, Dr Jan Broadway, kindly stood in and delivered her talk to us earlier in March when our speaker had to pull out.)
