I am a PhD student in the landscape department at the University of Sheffield. My primary research is archival and at the moment I am looking specifically at contracts. I have compiled details of the most known contracts including; Hampton Court, Chatsworth, Knole, Wentworth, Oatlands, Kirby Hall etc but obviously the more I can see and transcribe the more accurate and balanced my interpretation will be; you may know of archives that I have not heard about yet.

Thanking you.
