    Are there any plans to highlight Repton’s addresses like his Romford home (now recorded as street names like Repton Drive), his office at Hare Street, Harlow, and previous homes like Old Sustead Hall?

    Could these associations be used to develop links with the communities? Perhaps an exhibition in a local library? I’m sure you will have better ideas!

    Best wishes, Jenifer (Jenifer White, Historic England)

    It would be great to see photos and extra info added to Repton sites on the National Heritage List for England! It is very easy to join in ‘Enriching the List’. See https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/enrich-the-list/ Wouldn’t it be fantastic if there was at least one photo for each site by the end of 2018?

    And do tweet to let everyone know when your #EnrichTheList goes live!

    Thank you, Jenifer (Jenifer White, Historic England)

    Great to see Alysham Church is planning a #Repton 200 season! They already have a web page up http://www.aylshamparishchurch.org.uk/repton200 and have got a Mini Repton Pop-up Museum which they developed with the Norfolk Museums Service as part of their 12 Towers Festival.

    Great start!

    Dutch colleague, Henk van der Eijk has been researching Repton’s time in the Netherlands. Henk’s research is published as a blog at http://www.historicalgardensblog.com/ There are two blogs (i) Humphry Repton lived in Woudrichem, not Workum and (ii) Repton, Woudrichem and Rotterdam.
