Current Research Projects

research6For interested members there is a rolling programme of research topics to complement the education programme, fulfilling individual interests as well as Trust aims. Here are just some of the topics on the current programme.

  • Gardens Gazetteer: documenting historic landscapes, parks and gardens in the county
  • Memorial Gardens: our education theme for 2014 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of World War I
  • Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown: a national event to coincide with the tercentenary of his birth in 2016
  • Conservation Management Plans: to complement the Garden History Society National Project
  • Trees: the subject of a possible future project

If you have an interest in a specific area of research for heritage landscapes in Cambridgeshire we would love to hear about it and help if we can. Please contact us at admin@cambsgardens.org.uk.

On Tuesday 10th November 2015, we are holding a study afternoon at Fen Drayton Village Hall, entitled ‘Yorkshire Capabilities’. The speaker is Patrick Ayres. Full details here:
