We are publishing each site we have investigated, as part of our Research and Recording Project. Our group is discovering wealth of information about each site. As each site is completed it will be added to the (alphabetical) list here.
Just click on the name of a site to download the .pdf file about it, to learn more about its part in the county’s history of parks, gardens and other designed landscapes. These research ‘dossiers’ are modelled on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens entries produced by Historic England to give parks, gardens and other designed landscapes protection within the planning process.

We are currently researching these sites:
Aylesbury Museum, Baylis Park (Historic Bucks!), Bekonscot, Bulstrode, Campbell Park, Danesfield, Gayhurst, Medmenham, Orchard House (Olney), Peterley Manor, and Shardeloes with more in the pipeline…
Some of these are Registered sites already, but we are re-looking at them as part of the upcoming Repton 200 festival for 2018.
Again, as with Historic England Registered properties, a sites appearance here does not imply that they are open to the public. Please check the usual sources, Yellow Book (NGS), Red Cross, Thames Valley Air Ambulance etc for possible openings.
