Introduction to the Management of Historic Estates, Parks and Gardens - 8 - 9 July 2022
Date: 8-9 July 2022
Location A private estate in Shropshire and Hagley Hall, Worcestershire
This two-day course will study how a traditional landed estate used to be managed and how it manages to make its way in the twenty-first century. Are there compromises to be made over reusing farm buildings? If the estate contains listed buildings, scheduled monuments and a registered park or garden, how are funding targets met? The course will be held at a privately-owned estate near Shrewsbury. The second day looks at the history and management of historic parks and the exciting discovery and conservation of an eighteenth-century landscape garden.
‘To get behind the scenes as we did felt very privileged’; ‘The head gardener at Hagley is inspirational’.
