Discover nine of England's remarkable historic garden landscapes, and the women who helped create them. Illustrated with images from the Historic England Archive and Google Street View, this gallery illuminates the roles of women as designers, writers, botanists and craftswomen.
To commemorate the centenary of women winning the vote, Historic England will research, highlight and list places that played a part in the struggle for suffrage and subsequent gender equality.
Do you, or does someone in your family or area, have a hidden suffrage story? If you do, we’d love to hear it.
