This is the very last newsletter article of the Capability Brown Festival. Thank you for reading! A particularly big thank you to all the people who have written articles and generously shared their knowledge and enthusiasm with us. We decided to issue the last newsletter on 16th February, the date of Lancelot Brown’s burial as recorded in the parish register of Fenstanton.
