Hertfordshire Garden History Volume 2: Gardens Pleasant, Groves Delicious
Deborah Spring (Editor)
DescriptionThis second volume of Hertfordshire Garden History considers how Hertfordshire's historic parks and gardens have been influenced by, and reflect, the social and economic history of their time. Beginning with the hunting parks and Renaissance gardens of the Bacons, Cecils, and Capels in the 16th and 17th centuries-and their gradual replacement by designed landscapes-this book shows how, in Hertfordshire, individuals have long sought greater space and comfort within easy reach of the capital, London. With examples from both well-known and less-visible or vanished gardens from the past 500 years, it is sure to delight garden enthusiasts.
