MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS Humphry Repton at Woburn Abbey and Gardens Renowned gardening expert Alan Titchmarsh MBE opened a new exhibition at Woburn Abbey at a press launch on 21st March 2018, which celebrates the bicentenary of Humphry Repton and his influential work for the Dukes of Bedford. Recognised as the first person to invent and use the title ‘Landscape Gardener’, Humphry Repton regarded himself as the rightful successor to Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. Repton produced over 400 designs and schemes for gardens great and small, but of these, he stated, “none were more fully realised than at Woburn Abbey”. Keir Davidson, Matthew Hirst, The Duchess of Bedford, Alan Titchmarch MBE, Martin Towsey Exhibition - Humphry Repton: Art & Nature for the Duke of Bedford Now open to visitors until 28th October 2018, the new exhibition explores the fascinating relationship between Repton and one of his greatest clients. On public display for the first time will be his most elaborate and comprehensive ‘Red Book’, his famous presentation document of proposed designs. His Red Book for Woburn was commissioned in 1804 and illustrates his innovative plans for the Pleasure Grounds and Park, many of which were subsequently realised by the 6th Duke of Bedford. In addition, the exhibition will give guests the opportunity to discover Repton’s other works for the family including at the picturesque Devon Estate of Endsleigh, Oakley House and Russell Square in London. Never before seen, unexecuted designs will feature alongside works of art and archival treasures, which bring to life the creative legacy of Repton. Repton landscapes at Woburn Abbey Gardens Having explored Repton’s legacy in the exhibition, visitors need only step outside to discover Repton’s beautiful landscape designs. Since 2004 the present Duke and Duchess of Bedford have been restoring many of Repton’s features in the Woburn Abbey Gardens. These include the Folly Grotto, the Cone House, the Menagerie and the striking Chinese-style pavilion, which was completed in 2011 and went on to win a Hudson’s Heritage Award.
