Access to CMPs

The list aims to provide researchers notice of whether or not there is a CMP for an individual site and, if available, information on where a reference copy is held.

Many CMPs are available to study at publicly accessible archives or indeed online. However, for a host of reasons, researchers should not assume that CMPs held by privately owned parks and gardens are automatically available for study. Similarly, limitations on availability may apply to CMPs held by consultants, and charges may have to be made for providing advice or copies.

In any case, permissions should be sought from the CMP’s owner and author before any material is copied or reproduced.
