Image courtesy E & N Duke-CoxNicholas Duke-Cox has undertaken extensive research over the past three years in preparation for a publication on the definitive history of the gardens at Petwood House, now the Petwood Hotel.

 

In a recent article written for The Kew Guild, Nicholas calls for primary evidence of landscape architect and naturalist William Goldring’s involvement at Petwood House, originally built for the furniture heiress, Grace Maple, then Baroness Eckhardstein, between 1905 and 1906.

No one else ever had access to these gardens.” Continue reading
