Parks in Hertfordshire since 1500

Auteur :
PRINCE, H.

Description :
Over the centuries, the location of Hertfordshire just north of London has proved particularly attractive to ambitious and acquisitive newcomers, with great houses and landscape parks changing owners at a rapid rate. Landowners followed prevailing fashions in the design and development of their parklands, beginning with enclosures for deer hunting and moving to landscape gardening of extensive areas. Now, many of the great houses and private parks of the past have been transformed into golf courses, schools, or hotels, sold off as real estate, or conserved as tourist attractions. - (HC)
