A Garden History Society conference on landscape designer Humphry Repton. A series of commissions led Repton to publish a book of Sketches and Hints on Landscape Gardening in 1795. Like his later books this drew upon the Red Books he had produced for clients which laid out recommendations for their estates using his ingenious ‘before and after’ sketches.

Panel discussion with Derek Adlam, André Rogger, Hazel Fryer, moderated by Dominic Cole.

Timothy Mowl (Professor of History of Architecture and Designed Landscapes, University of Bristol) - 'Repton the Sweeper: Tidying up after Capability Brown'

Moderated by Barbara Simms (Chair, London Parks and Gardens Trust)
