A message from the SGLH Board of Trustees

It is with great sadness that we announce our Chair Vanessa Stephen passed away on Sunday 18th December 2022.  Vanessa pictured centre at this year’s Branklyn Garden Centenary Study Day became SGLH Chair in 2022.  Vanessa died at home, as she wished, with family, friends and nurses.  We shall all miss her indomitable spirit.

Vanessa trained as a Landscape Architect at the Edinburgh College of Art (Heriot Watt University). Her interest in historic landscapes developed while working in Edinburgh and on Deeside on a number of Conservation Management projects.

Vanessa’s funeral will be held in the New Year.
