Moggerhanger House Preservation Trust
Moggerhanger House, near Bedford, was remodelled in the late 18th century by Sir John Soane, and designs for the gardens and park were provided by Humphrey Repton in one of his famous ‘red books’. At least some of his recommendations appear to have been implemented, and the overall structure, if not the detail of planting, remain today.
In 2008, Erika worked closely (as part of Hilary Taylor Landscape Associates) on the development of landscape proposals for successful second stage application for funding to the Heritage Lottery Fund, including detailed proposals for orchard and other fruit tree planting, based on research into plant labels found on the site and historic local varieties. In 2010, she worked on the development of these proposals into construction drawings.
The Moggerhanger Gardens and Park are Grade II on the English Heritage Register of historic parks and gardens of special interest. For more information on visiting Moggerhanger click here.
