CHINGFORD AND TROUT PONDS RESTORATION, BURTON PARK, DUNCTON GU28 0QS
The lake and the Burton Park landscape were designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in 1758. The challenge was to restore the lakes to their historic depth and surface area by re-building the Chingford dam structure and desilting Trout Pond. Peter Gillbe, from Petworth Management Company Limited, received a judges’ commendation.

RESTORATION OF ELIZABETHAN AND JACOBEAN TERRACE AT DOVECOTE GARDEN, WEST DEAN NEAR ALFRISTON
Restoring the Terrace garden scheme to its origins was the project planned outcome. Identifying the site as an Elizabethan and Jacobean laid out Terrace Walk led to the replanting with species of the era. The later hothouse and hotbed horticulture design was also conserved.
