Henry Avray Tipping (1855-1933) was a wealthy Edwardian gentleman, a prolific and distinguished architectural historian and a garden designer of note.  As Architectural Editor of Country Life he made that magazine essential reading for everyone interested in Britain’s great country houses, their furnishings and their garden.  

In this illustrated talk, Helena Gerrish will focus on his own gardens in Monmouthshire, Mathern Palace, Mounton House and her own garden High Glanau Manor, as well as gardens he designed for others, notably at Chequers, Dartington Hall and Wyndcliffe Court.

Following a MA in Garden History at Bristol University, Helena Gerrish has restored Tipping’s garden at High Glanau back to the original 1923 design.  She wrote Edwardian Country Life – The Story of H. Avray Tipping published by Frances Lincoln in 2011.  She has recently written Mounton House – the birth and rebirth of an Edwardian Home published by Lund Humphries in 2022.  She is Chairman of the Monmouthshire branch of the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.
