David Caselton, manager of The Regent’s Park, came to us with the idea of a large exhibition on the origin and historical development of the park. We took the job on with great enthusiasm, found a title for it – ‘Regent’s Park. Your Park’ – and even found ourselves writing the greater part of the text. The name style derived from the story of Henry VIII drawing a loop around the religious property of St Mary le Bone on the map and declaring it his own hunting estate, in a shape which persists to this day in the outline of Regent’s Park.
