Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust have been researching historic parks and gardens of local importance for the last eight years and the resulting reports totalling nearly one hundred are available to view on our website. These reports include three museum gardens: The County Museum, Aylesbury (Ceeley House, home to BAS) High Wycombe (Castle Hill house, former Chair Museum), and The Cowper & Newton Museum in Olney. In addition, we will look at the herb garden at The Amersham Museum and the period gardens that have been re-created at the Chiltern Open Air Museum at Chalfont St Giles.
This talk will be based on the extensive research carried out by the Bucks gardens Trust volunteers, we shall take a brief look at the history of each of the museums, the development of their gardens, how they are managed today and how they contribute to the visitor experience.
