Tom Turner has been collecting information about John Claudius London, very intermittently, for 50 years.. He will speak about Loudon's background,  about Loudon's 'green plans' for London and about the  possible influence of Loudon's ideas on garden cities and on what has come to be called 'green infrastructure.'

Now retired, Tom Turner taught at the University of Greenwich and was a professional member of the Landscape Institute and the Royal Town Planning Institute. Having written a number of books on garden history and on landscape planning, he continues to edit the Gardenvisit.com  and  Landscapearchitecture.org.uk websites. Tom has also published some 300 videos on YouTube.

All welcome- this seminar is free to attend but booking is required.
