Sheringham Park is one of seven National Trust places featured in a programme of special events exploring the British landscape this autumn.
National Trust Uncovered offers visitors access to national specialists and conservation experts. A programme of free talks, walks, demonstrations and other activities will explore the rich history, collections and landscapes around a select group of trust places.
Sheringham Park Uncovered is on Saturday and Sunday, when Prof Stephen Daniels will be discussing the work of the landscape designer Humphry Repton, followed by a walk through the landscape that he designed.
Prof Daniels is Repton’s biographer and the nation’s expert on his work.
The National Trust’s head of nature conservation, Dr David Bullock, will also be discussing the changes and influences which have altered our landscapes over the centuries and the problems facing their survival in the 21st century.
Malcolm Fisher, visitor services manager for Sheringham Park, said: “Sheringham Park Uncovered promises to be a fascinating weekend for anyone interested in the north Norfolk coast.
“We like to think Sheringham Park is the jewel in north Norfolk’s crown, with its rich history and stunning landscape.”
