Linden Groves fell in love with gardens after working with Gillian Mawrey on her magazine Historic Gardens Review. Ten years later, she now has a Masters degree in Garden History and is still part of the Review’s editorial team. Linden is the author of Historic Parks and Gardens of Cheshire (2004, Landmark Publishing). She has also written for The Garden, Building Design, Footsteps and Kunapipi. English Heritage has recently commissioned Linden to research and write the history of children’s play in public parks. She also works as a conservation officer for the Garden History Society. Linden lives in Muswell Hill, London with her husband and two small children, both of whom are discerning garden visitors!
