Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to explore the ways in which gardens and nature were used to enhance the physical, educational and psychological development of children in London between 1850 and 1939. The research aims to demonstrate that although there are modern trends in utilising gardens and nature for the mental and physical development of children, such practices were, in fact, being developed over a century before.
