Exploring Garden History through Maps & Plans
Friday 4 April 2014
Identifying gardens on historic maps and plans is one of the most exciting, and easily accessible ways to start in garden history research. Starting in the 16th century we will identify knot gardens, fountains and walks in a series of colourful Tudor maps. Moving on via Estate maps to look at the delightful accuracy of the later 18th century county cartographers, the session will culminate in the almost unbelievable wealth of detail available in the late Victorian and Edwardian Ordnance Survey. It will also include a brief look at aerial photography.
