    Finding my place: The Rediscovery and Restoration of Hagley Park

    In this illustrated talk head of landscape Joe Hawkins will reveal his journey of discovery during the ongoing restoration of this once celebrated Georgian landscape which had lain neglected for a century and a half. Hagley Park’s main period of development occurred from 1747 and in its heyday drew visitors from around the world. This ambitious restoration will return it to its 18th Century glory. The park has now been designated a Grade I registered park of exceptional national importance and Joe is currently writing up his PhD thesis on the park.
