Repton ramble 

This year marks the bicentenary of the death of landscape designer Humphry Repton and events have been taking place throughout the country as part of ‘Repton 200’.

Often described as the successor to Capability Brown, Repton shaped and enhanced the landscapes of many country estates during the late 1700s and early 1800s, including Attingham Park. Guided walks celebrating Repton and the Landscape of Attingham will take place at 11am and 2pm on Friday 28 and Sunday 30 September. The walk traces Repton’s footsteps around the Mansion, into the Deer Park and down to Tern Bridge, stopping off at the locations and views he ‘designed’. Tickets cost £5 and must be booked in advance via nationaltrust.org.uk/attingham-park/whats-on or by calling 03442 491895. Standard admission charges also apply for National Trust non-members.
