Presentation Format

 Claude will talk about some of the experiences he encountered during his research leading up to the publication of his critically-acclaimed book,

Rock Landscapes: The Pulham Legacy,

and Valerie – who is directly descended from the Pulham family, and is an amateur geologist and professional garden designer in her own right – talks about the buildings, landscapes and garden ornaments they created, and of her practical experiences with the production and use of Pulhamite cement.   This will normally be followed by a short Q & A session, after which Claude will be available to sign copies of his book, which will be available at a specially discounted Presentation Price of £25 per copy.

Claude and Val have prepared a special video montage of pictures and photographs that, time permitting, can be run during the assembly of guests prior to the commencement of the talks.   The pictures are all examples of landscapes and ornaments created by ‘The Pulhams of Broxbourne’, and help to illustrate the tremendous range of expertise and skills of which this remarkable firm was capable.
