Village Hall Talks at Wootton-By-Woodstock
 
The Ben Viljoen Talk

BEN VILJOEN

Ben was speaking on the history of English landscape gardening in the 18th Century. His talk gave an overview of the work of Bridgeman, Kent, Brown and Repton with particular emphasis on Rousham and Stowe, as well as Blenheim. Ben told the story of the discovery of one of the lost Repton Red Books, showing that new discoveries can still be made even in an area as intensively researched as the history of landscape gardening.

 It was an absolutely wonderful evening and we are looking forward to the other talks with great anticipation. - Primrose and Vic Williamson
 The bush-telegraph has been humming after a tremendous occasion and I'm sure those who missed the first talk will be keen to attend the others - Diana and John Harwood
