Heritage Festival 2022, Week 3


Hospice Garden Talk CancelledThe history of the garden of Royal Trinity Hospice

September 12 Update – CANCELLED
We regret this talk has been cancelled due to the Bank Holiday on Monday 19th September.

This talk by Alyson Wilson for the Lambeth Heritage Festival is hosted by the Clapham Society and doubles as one of our regular meetings at Omnibus so you can expect to see many of our members, and non-members are always welcome.

Alyson is passionate about history and gardens so you can be sure to learn all about the history of the lovely garden at Trinity Hospice in Clapham. The garden is regularly open to the public and is beautifully maintained, a real Clapham gem.

About the Talk

Alyson Wilson will trace the story of the Royal Trinity Hospice garden from the time it was laid it out for Clapham Place, through various ownerships to the home of the renowned plant collector and MP, George Hibbert. To bring the history of the Trinity Hospice garden design up to date, Alyson will continue her talk with the story of a redesign for the Hospice by the American landscape architect, Lanning Roper, in the 1980s.
Clapham Place was the home of Denis Gauden (where his friend Samuel Pepys died)

Other Events in Week Three

If you missed the Local History Fair on the 3rd, you will have another chance to visit the Clapham Society display on Saturday 10 September, 12-6pm (tomorrow). This is a second chance to speak to historians and browse and purchase our books. Join us among the varied activities at the annual Clapham Fair on The Polygon.

Local History walks led by the Clapham Society were booked early and there are no places left. We know that there are disapointed people who wanted to join our walks but don’t despair, we are planning walks in October.
The first of these is the ‘Seeing the Woods for the Trees‘ on Sunday October 2nd.
Please go to our Walks page: click here for details (new window). More are being planned and updates will appear on our ‘Walks’ page so do check again soon.
