Senior gardens adviser Christopher Weddell's role has been split with Michael Klemperer taking up a new post as senior gardens adviser to support English Heritage's garden and landscape sites across the North and the Midlands. They report to head of gardens and landscape John Watkins.
Emily Parker is now landscape adviser, supporting research and understanding across English Heritage's garden and landscape sites. She has been promoted from an intern role in the garden and landscape team that English Heritage hopes to continue if and when some external funding can be found.
Meanwhile, Mark Brent has replaced Tom Hooijenga at Walmer Castle.
Weddell said the split in English Heritage led to the changes in the gardens and landscape team to help oversee around half-a-dozen big representation projects planned for the next five years, with three in the internal pipeline aiming for Heritage Lottery Fund financing.
The advisers continue their work with the 20-year masterplan at Wrest Park and operate supporting head gardeners in the same way as National Trust consultants.
The Government agreed that it would provide £80m to English Heritage if it transferred the national heritage collection to a charitable trust. This happened on 1 April 2015 when the old English Heritage separated into two parts - a charity that looks after the collections and Historic England to champion wider heritage.
