Humphry Repton: just what did he do for us in Bucks? Our new book

Download the Flyer and Order Form

Our new book presents the fruits of our ground-breaking Research and Recording Project on the work of Humphry Repton in historic Buckinghamshire.

The cover price for a printed copy will be £20, and it will also be available digitally on our web site, in due course.

The book includes essays on Repton in Bucks and his links further afield, based on our research, followed by a gazetteer providing detailed analysis for each of the 15 sites that have previously been associated with Repton in historic Bucks (to include Milton Keynes and Slough districts). We have reluctantly concluded that in fact Repton was probably not associated with 3 of these sites.

We have initially printed only  relatively few copies, and the text will be made available on our website for free download.
