PLEASE HELP US FUND THIS AND BECOME A VALUED SUBSCRIBER!

This new book presents the fruits of our ground-breaking Research and Recording Project on the work of Humphry Repton in historic Buckinghamshire. Become a subscriber, with your support recorded in the book. £40 will ensure that you receive a copy of the book with your name on the subscribers list as having helped to fund this important publication. The Heritage Lottery Fund has contributed to the project along with other charities, but final funds are needed towards the cost of design and printing. The cover price for a printed copy will be £20, and it will also be available digitally on our web site.

The book will comprise 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.

100 copies will be printed, and the text will be available on our website for free download.
