Bowood House & Gardens, located near Calne in Wiltshire, has been home to the Lansdowne family since 1754 and features what is regarded as one of 'Capability' Brown’s best-preserved parklands. It’s also considered to be one of the earliest examples of the legendary landscape designer’s fully-developed style. Enthusiastically marking this year’s Capability Brown Festival - celebrating the tercentenary of his birth - the 'Terrestrial Delights' exhibition (through to 31st October) in the House’s Orangery charts the development of the parkland in fascinating detail.
