Hidden Clues to Past Landscapes

This one-day course is based in the 107-hectare estate surrounding Forty Hall, Enfield and it will encourage anyone with an interest in landscape history to observe those features which provide clues to the evolution of this landscape over the past 600 or so years. The Grade I listed building, Forty Hall was built in the 17th century and has been recently restored. Its surrounding estate is within the London Metropolitan Green Belt and includes the site of Henry VIII’s Elsyng Palace, a working farm and a newly planted vineyard. Extensive landscaping works have been carried out in the past and include the planting of an avenue of trees, formal gardens and a small lake. Please bring a packed lunch. Please note the venue for this course is: Forty Hall Farm, Forty Hill, Enfield EN2 9HA.
