Heritage Landscapes in the Urban Realm – Armagh (United-Kindgom)

Our urban landscapes contain a rich and varied heritage of shared green spaces such as town squares, public and municipal parks, botanic gardens, tree-lined streets, public walks, allotments and detached town gardens. Some have evolved organically through time, others are the product of careful urban landscape design, especially from the early twentieth century when, following the influence of Ebenezer Howard and others, there was a strong emphasis on soft landscaping. In addition to examining these historic developments, this conference will seek to highlight dangers to this heritage and efforts made towards its conservation.
