Research7The Garden Research Group of Huntingdon NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) is associated with the Trust and assists with the management and coordination of selected research projects.

Meeting regularly to discuss, plan and execute project work, in the field or in the Record Office, this welcoming group provides opportunities throughout the year for networking, site visiting and documenting their results from a variety of heritage landscape projects in Cambridgeshire.

Extensive prior research by Trust members is now listed on the National Register of Parks and Gardens, a national database that is accessible to all through the internet.

Other research is published in Trust newsletters and occasional books.

If you would like to contribute to the wealth of research that we hold on Cambridgeshire gardens or would just like advice on carrying out a research project of your own then please contact Judith Christie at [email protected].

We aspire to discover, document and communicate information on past and present designed landscapes in Cambridgeshire, thereby providing a lasting benefit to society.

Our approach:

  • Research and record historic landscapes, parks and gardens in the county
  • Hold regular meetings and network with other researchers
  • Provide advice and guidance to new members
  • Communicate results through a wide range of media including our website, newsletters, books and lectures, and other channels, such as the National Parks and Gardens Database, as appropriate
  • Support the Trust’s education programme
  • Collaborate with other local and national organisations

Our policy is to comply with legal requirements on copyright and data protection, and to seek permission before publishing material from private sources.
