This second volume of Hertfordshire garden history considers how
Hertfordshire's historic parks and gardens have been influenced by,
and reflect, the social and economic history of their time.
Beginning with the hunting parks and Renaissance gardens of the
Bacons, Cecils, and Capels in the 16th and 17th centuries--and
their gradual replacement by designed landscapes--this book shows
how, in Hertfordshire, individuals have long sought greater space
and comfort within easy reach of the capital, London. With examples
from both well-known and less-visible or vanished gardens from the
past 500 years, it is sure to delight garden enthusiasts.
