John Dando Sedding (1838-1891) was a church architect in Britain, working on new buildings and repair work, with an interest in a 'crafted Gothic' style. He was an influential figure in the Arts and Crafts movement, many of whose leading designers studied in his offices. They included Ernest Gimson, Ernest Barnsley and Herbert Ibberson. His 1889 lecture, "The Architectural Treatment of Gardens", was influential in the revival espoused by Reginald Blomfield, of "Jacobean" features such as terraces, covered walks, bowling greens, clipped yew hedges and topiary, which would combine with "cottage garden" elements in the Arts and Crafts gardens of 1890-1915.
