Abstract:
Paper investigating the life and career of Alexander Davison (1750--1829), a Northumbrian contractor and government supplier, and close associate and friend of Lord Nelson. It traces the background to the Nelson obelisk erected by Davison in 1807 at Swarland, Northumberland, and examines the evidence for the `Battle-Park', representing the British fleet at the Battle of the Nile, which Davison also laid out at Swarland park. Davison's landscape legacy, both around his Swarland estate and adjacent to the Cheviots at Kirknewton, is described.
