David Standing has been the head gardener at Gilbert White's house since 1979 and will be leading a tour of the gardens at Gilbert White's House. Gilbert White is renowned for his botanical study "The Natural History of Selborne", and the work continues today. The original garden layout had been altered considerably over time, so the trust now running the museum have gradually been restoring the garden and surrounding lands back to how it would have been. Although it is unlikely that Gilbert White and Jane Austen met - he died before she moved to Chawton - they are from the same era.
