HAT Grant to Hampshire Gardens Trust

Hampshire Gardens Trust

The Trust has awarded £3000 towards the cost of the publication – which is informed by research on the Jervoise family archives held at Hampshire Record Office.

2018 is the bicentenary of Repton’s death and many County Gardens Trusts have published books about their (more numerous) sites. There are only two authenticated Repton sites in Hampshire, Herriard Park and Stratton Park.

HGT research adds to knowledge about Repton’s work and how his ideas were implemented at Herriard, which will be published by HGT in 2019.

The research project will reconstruct the work carried out by George Purefoy Jervoise at Herriard Park between 1793 and 1799 to plans by Humphry Repton, landscape gardener and successor to Lancelot ’Capability’ Brown. The Jervoise family archive is one of the largest held at Hampshire Record Office. Detailed transcription and analysis of letters and bills have resulted in a description of what was done at Herriard and the scale and cost of the works.
