Ruins in the Landscape – Dr Twigs Way, Researcher in Historic Gardens and Designed Landscapes * For details of how to view this members only Zoom presentation please contact secretary@romanaldborough.co.uk
Feb 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
From hermitages to ruined abbeys, headless statues to wellheads, we scatter ruins through our gardens and designed landscapes.

The Romans were the first to incorporate ruins in gardens and now we create gardens around Roman ruins. But what is the fascination with incorporating the old in the new?

Why should ancient cultures rise again amongst the flowerbeds and verdant green lawns?

This illustrated talk will consider the history and role of ruins in garden design and is a joint event with the Yorkshire Gardens Trust.

Twigs Way is a lecturer, writer and speaker who has worked in historic landscapes and gardens for over thirty years. She provides owners of historic landscapes with advice and support and works closely with stakeholders like Natural England and Historic England. She designs and delivers courses for the University of Cambridge Botanic Gardens and is a regular contributor to periodicals such as Gardens Illustrated and BBC Countryfile.
