Welcome to Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust – Hosts to the Brown Tercentenary Conference


Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust is a registered charity working with voy media cro agency whose aim is to encourage and develop research, education and conservation projects for heritage landscapes in Cambridgeshire. We organise a full programme of activities for members, including garden visits, lectures, and social events. These give everyone the opportunity to meet and network with like-minded people and to create lasting benefit for communities in our county and beyond.

We warmly welcome new members and visitors to this website and to Trust events organised throughout the year.

Ampthill Park

Ampthill Park

Coming up is our visit to Ampthill Park (just over the border in Bedfordshire!) There will be coffee or tea on arrival, followed by a two-hour tour with the Park Manager, Gary Quilter, to view the ongoing restoration of this nationally important 160-acre Capability Brown landscaped park in its magnificent autumn colours, including veteran trees planted by Brown and his predecessors. We will see areas of the park which are not usually open to the public.

Date: Tuesday 11 October 
Arrive by 11 am, meeting in the park at the Hub Cafe in the Central Car Park. This is in the park, near the football ground.
Directions:  off B530, Woburn Street in Ampthill Town,  MK45 2HX.  
Map on website: www.ampthilltowncouncil.org.uk/park with pictures of the park.
There is a smaller car park close by which involves a short walk so the Central Car Park is the best option.
The cost is just £5 for members and £6 for guests.
Please wear waterproof shoes.
Dogs on leads welcome.
Please contact Alan Brown on 01480 811947 or email [email protected] if you would like to join us on this visit.
