A large crowd of people came to Aylsham’s St Michael’s Church to partake in the launch of the Norfolk Garden Trust’s latest book- Humphry Repton in Norfolk.

Humphry Repton in Norfolk

We were given a warm welcome by Revd Canon Andrew Beane who pointed out that Repton’s grave was just outside the church. Matthew Martin, the chairman of the Trust, gave an address of thanks to all concerned and presented gifts (in envelopes) to the editors Sally Bate, Tom Williamson and Rachel Savage and a special mention & gift to Roger Last, whose photography of the materials is throughout the book.

Tom Williamson gave his usual interesting address and Sally Bate followed with a small history of how it all came together with all the ups and downs of publishing.

The evening ended with a long queue of people waiting for their books to be signed by the editors.
