Gardens Trusts

'Exists to identify, understand, appreciate, and promote the conservation of historically significant designed landscapes in Berkshire. Designed Landscapes naturally include gardens and also parks, cemeteries and institutional landscapes such as college grounds. Historically Significant means that the landscape is important and valuable to this and future generations. The landscape’s importance could be due to its age and survival; its influence on the development of taste and fashion; its rarity; its association with a significant person, historic event or house; or a combination of these factors. These historically significant landscapes form a precious but often fragile part of our shared history ... The Berkshire Gardens Trust runs an annual programme of garden visits, lectures and talks.'
