Event Information

Thomas White (c. 1736-1811): Redesigning the Northern British Landscape’.
Louise Wickham

Joint Lecture with the Yorkshire Gardens Trust.

This lecture, based on the book of the same title by Deborah Turnbull and Louise Wickham, aims to restore the reputation of Thomas White, who in his time was as well respected as his fellow landscape designers Lancelot “Capability” Brown and Humphrey Repton. By the end of his career he had produced designs for at least 32 sites across northern England and over 60 in Scotland. He has a vital role in the story of how northern English designed landscapes evolved in the eighteenth century.

This lecture will be held in the Tempest Anderson Lecture Theatre in the Yorkshire Museum, York at 7.30pm.
