Title : Parks & gardens UK

Description :
Parks & Gardens UK is a Web resource that is managed by the Parks and Gardens Data Services, a charity that was set up through a partnership between the Association of Gardens Trusts and the University of York. The website contains outline information on places where historic parks or gardens exist, the local authority under whose jurisdiction they lie, persons associated, and contact names and addresses of bodies that may provide further information. The catalogue can be browsed by name or associated people and organisation; it is also possible to access records via a map or use an advanced search form. Each record provides a set of locational information accompanied by a brief description, while a 'Designations' section details any conservation/scheduling or official monuments register information. Some records are accompanied by short illustrated essays with bibliographies and biographies. Attention is drawn to particular landscape features and any buildings associated with the garden are noted. Listed buildings are highlighted where applicable. There are links to other useful resources for landscape and garden history. Access to the website is free.
