Synopsis

Lost Gardens of England by Kathryn Bradley-Hole

Over the course of the twentieth century, Country Life's influential weekly articles on gardens have resulted in an unrivalled archive of gardening history, which forms the basis for this book. The ephemeral nature of gardens means that they can very easily become 'lost'. The 45 lost English gardens illustrated and discussed in detail are organised by region and cover a wide range of period and style from the 1890s through to the 1930s, revealing the magic of Victorian and Edwardian garden design. Beautifully reproduced in duotone, the 160 stunning photographs bear testament to the rich and varied heritage of English gardens and of the people who created them. Kathryn Bradley-Hole has revisited the locations and her carefully researched, perceptive text explains their background and their fate.
