2018 was the bicentenary of the death of Humphry Repton.  

To mark this, the Gardens Trust coordinated a year of events held across the country.  

To mark this event, the Isle of Wight Gardens Trust worked with Oakfield Primary School who are located at St John’s House, Ryde, one of the Repton sites on the Island.  Together we explored the changes to the designed landscapes in the area and the influence of Repton.

We also researched in more detail Repton’s influence on the Isle of Wight and published a booklet on our findings.  This can be accessed here.  If you would prefer a printed copy please contact us to enquire.
