Chris Crowder - Shaping History: the garden at Levens Hall (Thursday 7th February 2013)

Thu, 07/02/2013 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm
Said Business School in Oxford (adjacent to the railway station)

 

Gardens can be a living link with the past, and few reflect this more than the garden at Levens Hall whose layout and iconic topiary were first established more than three centuries ago. Chris Crowder, head gardener there for over 25 years, will chart its evolution through historic documents, plans and paintings to present day photography. Chris will reveal a reverence for its past, whilst acknowledging that refreshment and renewal are vital in presenting great gardens to each new generation.

Lectures take place at 8.00pm at the Said Business School in Oxford (adjacent to the railway station). Tickets cost £12 and can be purchased online.
