Description

Pulhams

Join us at Epping Forest District Museum for a spectaular exhibition on one of the most important landscape design companies of the Victorian and Edwardian era.

From their manufactory in Broxbourne, the company produced a wide range of very high-quality, classically-designed terracotta garden ornaments, such as vases, urns, sundials and fountains and example of their work can be seen locally and nationally, from High Leigh in Hoddesdon to Buckingham Palace in London.

In 1868, the firm was awarded its first Royal Warrant for the work they did on Sandringham Royal Estate, where they constructed two lakes, one with a large boat cave. Their second Royal Warrant was awarded for the rockwork they did on ‘The Mound’ and around the lake at Buckingham Palace in 1903-04.

Don’t miss out on seeing this fascinating exhibition, which showcases the history of this remarkable company.

To accompany the opening of the exhibition, Claude Hitching, author of Rock Landscapes- The Pulham Legacy will be at the museum signing copies of his book between 11am and 1pm on Saturday 9 February - the perfect gift for a garden loving friend!
