2018 marks the bicentenary of Humphry Repton's death, who was the last great landscape designers of the eighteenth century. Throughout the year, across the country, the Gardens Trust will be coordinating Repton 200 events, celebrating his work.
Repton was born in 1752 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk and then moved to Hare Street, close to Gidea Park in Essex. After a few years of career stop starts, he set himself up as a landscape gardener. He went on to design several hundred English landscapes and gardens becoming a worthy successor to the great 'Capability' Brown.
His work can be seen at Sherringham Park in Norfolk, Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire, Uppark House in West Sussex and many more.
