Hugh May: His Architecture and Gardens
Tuesday 13th November 2012
Sally Jeffery is an architectural and garden historian. She taught on the MA Garden History at Birkbeck, University of London, until last year.
Hugh May is best known for his work for the Crown after the Restoration, especially at Windsor Castle. However, he is also credited with the design of a number of houses and gardens for those in the court circle. Sally will look at the evidence for his involvement and consider how his innovatory style was influenced by his time abroad with the exiled court.
