Celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of this great landscape designer...
2016 marks the 300th anniversary of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, one of the UK's most celebrated landscape gardeners. Find out more about the man who helped define our image of the English landscape.
'Capability' Brown is responsible for one of the beautiful areas of Wimpole's parkland, which has an extraordinary folly in the form of a ruined castle at its heart.
We have recently uncovered exciting evidence that Capability Brown prepared a small scheme for altering the lake and lakeside area.
The detail of Capability Brown's connection at Ickworth is still a little sketchy. Find out what we do know and what the Embroiderers' Guild have been up to, to mark his 300th birthday.
Inspired by Brown’s landscape, we've been working with NEON on a contemporary art installation that will make you look at a series of picturesque views, or scenes in a new way.
We will be celebrating the anniversary of 'Capability' Brown at Hatfield Forest with a series of events, including special Capabili-Tea's, guided walks and a "Big Brown Bash" conservation day.
I wish my journey may prove of use to the place, which if it should, it will be very flattering to me. Nature has been truly bountiful and art has done no harm."
'Capability' Brown celebrations begin with our Director-General Dame Helen Ghosh planting a tree at Croome, Worcestershire, one of his most significant landscapes.
