Details

In the early 18th century, ideas about garden design were changing fast. Using 18th century plans and archives we will explore the garden at Marble Hill which included grottoes, groves, wildernesses and a ninepin bowling alley! Henrietta Howard’s friendship with Alexander Pope, Lord Bathurst, Lord Peterborough and Lord Ilay, meant that her garden at Marble Hill was influenced by some of the most fashionable garden enthusiasts of the time. This talk will explore how the garden was created, who might have influenced its design and how Howard would have enjoyed using it.
