William Barron is one of the unsung heroes of British garden design, often overshadowed by other famous horticulturists such as Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton. William Barron: The Victorian Landscape Gardener tells the story of an unassuming man who made an everlasting impression on the British landscape. Tamsin Liddle and Peter Robinson explore Barron’s humble beginnings, delve into the influences that shaped his work and look at his engineering and horticultural innovations. Barron’s designs have been enjoyed for more than 150 years, and this book celebrates spaces across the country – in particular the jewel in his crown, Elvaston.


Having paved the way for the generations of gardeners that followed him, Barron’s work continues to touch the lives of families and individuals seeking space, enjoyment, and relaxation in an increasingly urban society.


The authors’ royalties for this book will support the longevity of Elvaston, its gardens and restoration.
