Dr Jan Woudstra will launch his new book, A History of Groves, at Sheffield Botanical Gardens on Sunday 10 September at 2pm.

Edited with Colin Roth and published by Routledge, the volume emphasises the renewed interest in the grove – a grouping of trees – and explores this within a range of different cultural traditions.

Prior to the launch, Jan will give an illustrated talk, ‘Robert Marnock and the creation of the Sheffield Botanical Gardens'.

The launch and talk are part of the Heritage Open Day programme and will take place in the new Dorothy Fox Education Centre.
