Capability Brown Welcoming His Guests

Capability Brown Welcoming His Guests

 

Northamptonshire Gardens Trust is working in partnership with Castle Ashby as part of the Capability Brown Festival 2016  with a week of visits to Castle Ashby being part of our ambitious project which aims to encourage a wider and more diverse audience to visit, learn about and enjoy ‘Capability’ Brown’s landscapes.

The Festival is managed by the Landscape Institute and is funded with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

As part of the celebration, Northamptonshire Gardens Trust has co-hosted various groups around the Capability Brown landscape at Castle Ashby and we hope you enjoy these photographs which show the fun that was experienced by us all.
