2. Charles Bridgeman (English Heritage). Natural Landscapes: Horace Walpole regarded Bridgeman as the first English gardener to move away from the rigid ‘square precision of the foregoing age’ to the more natural landscape gardening of the Georgian period. This transition was exemplified by his work for the 1st Viscount Cobham at Stowe, Buckinghamshire. Between about 1713 and 1725 Bridgeman created one of the most important landscape gardens of the age, collaborating with architects such as John Vanbrugh and William Kent....Five years after moving in 54 Broadwick Street with his wife Sarah (d. 1743/4), Bridgeman was appointed Royal Gardener. In addition to designing the Round Pond (1728) and the Serpentine (1731) for Queen Caroline, he was responsible for a portfolio of properties including Hampton Court, St James’s Palace and Windsor Castle. Other commissions included the gardens at Rousham House in Oxfordshire and Amesbury in Wiltshire." (Submitted on November 17, 2017.)
