The work and influence of landscape gardener Humphry Repton is the subject of a talk in Spalding on Friday.

Repton (1752-1818) was the most prolific landscape gardener of his era, consulted by around 350 estates.

His main legacy and influence though is through his published works, consisting of four main titles. These have inspired several generations of landscape designers and their content is still as valid today as it was in Repton’s own time.

RHS gold medal recipient George Carter – whose new book Setting the Scene is due for publication in 2018 – is to give the lecture on behalf of Spalding Gentlemen’s Society.

The public lecture is at Spalding Grammar School at 8pm. Entry is £2.50.
