A second memorial lecture on celebrated landscape gardener Humphry Repton will be held at Aylsham parish church.
Repton is buried in the churchyard and his family worshipped there.
Tom Williamson, Professor of Landscape History at the UEA, will give the talk 'Humphry Repton and the Picturesque' on Friday, May 10 at 7.30pm.
It follows a hugely successful inaugural lecture last year, part of the Repton200 Festival, marking the bicentenary of Repton's death in 1818.
Mr Williamson, who has published several books on 18th century landscape gardening, hosted a workshop in Aylsham last year about Repton's work as a landscape designer and entrepreneur.

It is hoped that Repton lectures will become an annual event, helping to keep his legacy fresh, to share current ideas about his contribution, and to focus on landscape and gardening history more generally.
Entry to the lecture is free, but donations are welcome.
