As part of the Capability Brown Tercentenary year celebrations this day conference will explore Brown’s contribution to the gardens of historic houses in Essex, and the wider issues of the understanding, management, and restoration of designed landscapes in the county, and beyond. Chaired by Dr Liz Lake, the conference will include a keynote session by garden historian and author Dr Twigs Way, and talks by Dr Sarah Rutherford, author of the recently published book, ‘Capability Brown: Father of Landscape Gardens’, as well as local experts. A guided tour of the landscape at Audley End will also be available.
A light lunch will be provided.
