Berrington’s Georgian Garden Restoration

At Berrington Hall we're beginning a new project with a vision to conserve and restore the Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds that is the last known masterpiece designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.

  • Lancelot 'Capability' Brown was commissioned in 1775 to create a masterpiece out of Berrington's landscape
  • It will take £150,000 to complete projects such as reinstating the Ha-Ha
  • Hopefully, with a few years of development and support, by 2022 we will have restored this masterpiece to how Brown intended

Donate to Berrington’s Georgian Garden Restoration

Please select an amount

A view of the front of the mansion from behind the Ha-Ha
£10 Could help with reinstating the original extent of the Ha-Ha to reveal the intended aesthetic of the 'Capability' Brown design. This will reconnect the pleasure ground and walled garden experience with the parkland.
£20 Could help to reinstate the 100ft long former glasshouse. This would enable us to grow the fruits and flowers the Harley family would have enjoyed from this garden.
