Lancelot Capability Brown - A Tercentenary Consideration of Britain's Greatest Landscape Gardener and His Shropshire Connections
Gareth J.L. Williams M.A., Curator and Head of Learning to the Weston Park Foundation.
2016 marks the tercentenary of the birth of Britain's greatest landscape gardener, Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Whilst Shropshire has no Chatsworth or Burghley, Brown enjoyed links with several influential Shropshire residents and assisted with bringing to the fore the ‘capabilities’ of a good few acres within the county boundary. His legacy and his influence will be considered in this illustrated lecture where Gareth Williams assesses his impact on Shropshire and national history.
The venue will be open from 1.30pm, with Meeting to begin at 2.00pm.
Tea will then be served.
Lecture to commence at 3.00pm and expected to finish by 5.00pm.
Parking will be available in Frankwell car park.
A donation of £5 for this event would be gratefully received.
