More Description


The parks and gardens of the 17th century through to the Victorian era were objects of status and pride as well as being functional areas of the tamed landscape which could be used for leisure and for growing food. Tom Williamson discusses garden and park design and location, management and organisation, as well as those who commissioned, designed, built and managed them. He considers the impact of influences from the Continent, changes in fashions and the role of particular individuals such as Capability Brown. Accompanied by lots of wonderful contemporary illustrations and more recently taken photographs, some in colour.
