The day will comprise a mixture of short talks and practical sessions, the
latter examining copies of his famous ‘red books’ and old maps. We will address
two main issues: what was the nature of Repton’s style and how did it differ
from that of his predecessor, Capability Brown? And how did Repton’s style
reflect his ideas about the relationship between landscape and society?

This is a day-long workshop provides an opportunity for you to explore aspects
of Humphry Repton’s life and work. It will appeal to adults wishing to know more
about this important local and national figure and would be particularly
suitable for adults with an interest in the history of gardening, the eighteenth
century and of Norfolk.
