EDITORS COMMENTS This print takes us back in time to the enchanting Cirencester Park in Gloucestershire. The year is 1883, and amidst the sprawling woodlands, we see a couple engaged in an intimate conversation on one of the picturesque paths between the towering Cathedral Firs. Cirencester Park, established between 1715 and 1740, showcases the Forest Style of gardening at its finest. The radiating paths that weave through this extensive woodland are a testament to meticulous planning and design. As we gaze upon this image captured by Henry Taunt, we can almost feel ourselves transported into this Victorian era oasis. The tranquility of nature envelops every inch of this scene; sunlight filters through the dense canopy above while leaves gently rustle underfoot. It's as if time stands still within these ancient trees that have witnessed centuries pass by. Henry Taunt's skillful photography captures not only the beauty of Cirencester Park but also evokes a sense of nostalgia for a simpler time when strolling hand-in-hand amidst nature was cherished above all else. As we admire this remarkable piece from Historic England's collection, let us appreciate both Taunt's artistry and Cirencester Park's enduring allure – an idyllic sanctuary where lovebirds find solace amongst whispering branches and dappled sunlight.
