The Ashridge Estate has been adapted by its many owners over its history. Around 1760 Capability Brown, the famous landscape architect, worked on Ashridge's parkland creating the Golden Valley. His work was continued 50 years later during another phase of redevelopment by one of his students, Humphrey Repton.

Mick has been Gardens Manager at Ashridge since 1994 and also has an archive role. He initiated the annual archaeological digs of the grounds by Berkhamsted & District Archaeological Society (BADAS) in 2010. Mick is a member of Herts Gardens Trust and Secretary of Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust and in the past has been a council member of the Gardens Trust and Plant Collections Co-ordinator for Herts and Beds Plant Heritage.
