EH plans 'modern' gardens for historic settings

  • Comment

English Heritage is to announce a shortlist tomorrow (Friday) of designers for four contemporary gardens in historic settings, and launch competitions for a further six sites. The sites already announced are at Richmond Castle and Lincoln Bishop's Palace, where there will be new gardens, and at Eltham Palace and Osborne House. The intention is to replicate the success of the garden that Penelope Hobhouse designed at Walmer Castle as a 95th birthday present for the Queen Mother. An eh spokeswoman denied a story in The Times that Sir Jocelyn Stevens 'wants to dig up Queen Victoria's most cherished garden' at Osborne House.
