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