The Gaskell House is a Grade 2 listed building and museum to the Victorian novelist, biographer, and short story writer Elizabeth Gaskell. Randall Thorp worked closely with a team of historic building experts to draw up plans to restore the gardens to their Victorian glory. We then oversaw a team of local volunteers and experts who designed and then implemented a scheme to recreate the garden using materials, construction and plant varieties that all would have been familiar to Mrs Gaskell.
