In the early 20th century Henry Avray Tipping was one of the most respected authorities on the history, architecture and gardens of English houses. He was the Architectural Editor of Country Life from 1907 until his death in 1933. His articles on country houses and gardens became the magazine’s most important feature. As well as an architectural historian and garden designer, writer on woodcarving, oak furniture, china and silver, he was also an expert on politics, social reform, a fine actor and even an accomplished cook. He worked alongside Gertrude Jekyll from whom he drew inspiration for his own gardens. His works include the walled gardens at Chequers, Mathern Palace and Wyndcliffe Court. He also advised on the gardens at Dartington Hall, Gregynog and Clytha Park.
