Norfolk Notebook 13/14

The National Trust look after Sheringham Park, a large area of parkland above the town. Sheringham Park is the most complete and best preserved example of landscape gardener Humphry Repton's work. Repton designed the park in 1812 and proclaimed it 'my most favourite work'. He adapted the landscape to stage-manage spectacular views of the sea, framed by woodland. This shot was taken in drizzly rain looking out over some of the parkland towards the North Sea.

Old Humphry wasn't a bad judge!
Brian Walbey: He certainly wasn't Graeme, it is a fine park park with some great views.

Cleverly disguised as grazing land , with a dense copse of trees partly hiding a few buildings...with a slab of water at the back, and a nicely slanted horizon.

Its good stuff, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, there are quite a few more fine views like this one in the parkland.
It seems like such a natural occurrence! Very well done, and well taken!
Brian Walbey: Yes Repton fitted the landscaping in very well with local surroundings.

I can see what you mean Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it's very nice isn't it, with a lot more views like this through the parkland.

Humphry did an excellent job Brian
Brian Walbey: I certainly agree with that Sally.
I would probably like his work - not too formal.
Brian Walbey: Yes and behind me is a big area of woodland which is a picture of colour with Rhododendrons in the early summer.
He sounds good. Very natural looking isn't it
Brian Walbey: It all seems to fit together very well Janet.

I've not heard of the gardener before. Nevertheless, he's designed that appeals very much to me, What beautiful trees they are.
Brian Walbey: I haven't heard of him either Alan, but he done a great long-term job.
Repton did a nice job, didn't he Brian?
Brian Walbey: Yes I think we can say he did Richard.

I am sorry your Norfolk notebook is ending, Brian - it has been varied and interesting
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Like all the best landscaped areas, it doesn't look landscaped at all!
Brian Walbey: I suppose that is the secret of being a landscape creator Tom.
