Sudeley Castle visit
16th July 2013
As part of this year’s staff development the Landscape Architecture tutors had a tour of the landscapes of Sudeley Castle by Steve Lannin and John Hodder, the Head Gardeners. It was a fascinating insight into the creation, historic development, workings and management of a historic landscape that is now open to the public. They are constantly in the process of researching the history of the castle and grounds to discover, as accurately as possible, the way the landscapes have been used and changed in the past, as well as creating new landscapes and gardens that are perhaps more sustainable and wildlife friendly in relation to contemporary culture and thinking.
