Research

The Research & Recording committee collects information about historic gardens and designed landscapes in Dorset.

Our investigations take us to history centres, museums, libraries and collections and where possible we work with the owners to uncover the history of their gardens.  Our research covers not only gardens and parks of historic mansions but also designed public parks, small gardens, designed villages and even cemeteries.

The collated information gives us a good picture of the fascinating gardens in Dorset from which we recommend sites of local significance as well as those of national importance.
