Sutton Court and Chiswick House, gardens open 10am-5pm, 12 June
London Open Garden Squares weekend
Between 1680 and 1700 Lord Fauconberg was creating a formal garden and park at Sutton Court. Lord Burlington bought the estate in the 1720s to add to the grounds of Chiswick House. James Wisdom, B&CLHS chairman, will show that traces of this lost landscape can still be seen in a talk at Sutton Court (11-11.30am). He will lead a guided walk from Sutton Court at 2pm through Fauconberg and Burlington’s lands to the Chiswick House walled gardens, ending about 4pm with a short slide show.
