Purley Hall and Charles Bridgeman Talk

For those interested in Berkshire's rich history

Our speaker is Ben Viljoen, a founder member of Berkshire Gardens Trust. Ben has always been interested in the history of 18th century English landscape gardening. He was delighted to find that both Charles Bridgeman, father of the English Landscape movement, and Humphry Repton, who succeeded Lancelot Brown, did work in Purley. His talk will be about the rich history of Purley Hall, a secluded Jacobean manor house that is not open to the public, and its connection with Charles Bridgeman.

After the talk, tea/coffee and cake will be available (included in the price).

Pre-booking is preferred, but you can pay on the door, if there are spaces available.
