With Stephen Smith

Constant threats to historic planting are posed by planning decisions, pests and diseases and a lack of awareness of its historic significance. Insufficiently recognized in Conservation Management Plans, the living layer of historic landscapes is vulnerable. Stephen Smith will consider case studies in London and from further afield which will include Knighton Wood, a lost 19th-century garden in Epping Forest, and Valentines, a historic landscape 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
