Lectures

Tim’s upcoming lectures include visual presentations on Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown to coincide with the CB300 celebrations, a lavishly illustrated overview of gardens in the Regency, a personal narrative of the gardens and landscapes he visited in preparing the last Historic Gardens of England volume on Hampshire and a Draughtsman’s Contract-style pursuit of the mysterious Thomas Robins through his rare and exotic eighteenth-century watercolours.

 

Tim is also taking walkers on a tour of the architectural oddities of Bristol and an exploration of Humphry Repton’s Picturesque landscape at Blaise Castle.
