Heritage Lottery Fund have launched a photo competition celebrating the UK’s heritage. Share an image of your favourite heritage with #HeritageTreasures - and tell HLF why you love it. Dare we suggest a Capability Brown Landscape?
2016 was quite a year of tercentenary celebrations for Capability Brown. The Festival team have spent a little time looking over the news stories for the tercentenary year and have picked out some of our favourites to revisit.
Watch Leslie Pearman from Natural England's webinar highlighting how Capability Brown’s landscapes provide havens for wildlife and stepping stones for species to connect with similar habitats in the wider landscape.
Brown’s name will forever be associated with the English Landscape Garden, and it is only fitting that his 300th anniversary was celebrated on such a lavish scale. However, we need to remind ourselves that there were other contemporary styles and many gifted amateur designers, usually the owners.
