The Conservation of Historic Gardens in Europe

Edited by Elisabeth Whittle

Reviewed by Mike Oates

In April 1994 the Garden History Society and the University of York's Centre for the Conservation of Historic Parks and Gardens were joint sponsors of an international conference in York with the above title.

The conference tackled four themes:

  • Principles of protection
  • The role of official and voluntary agencies
  • Financing conservation
  • Education and training for the conservation of historic parks and gardens.

The proceedings are now available, and also include summaries of the discussions that took place. They bring together the views and experiences of some of Europe's leading figures in the field of garden conservation.
