With Ed Ikin & Stephen Smith

Management Plans have given insufficient recognition of the threats to garden plantings from pests and diseases, planning decisions and a lack of awareness of their historic significance.  This lecture will consider two contrasting case studies in London, among others elsewhere:  Knighton Wood, a lost 19th-Century garden in Epping Forest and Valentine's Park, a historic landscape now in public ownership.

All Lectures 7-8pm (6.30pm for a glass of wine) in The Gallery, 70-77 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EJ (entrance down stairs on the right at the far end of the Courtyard).  Nearest underground Farringdon, bus routes 55, 243 along Clerkenwell Road
