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.
