The Water Tower (with The Folly in the distance), Redgrave Park, Suffolk (oil on board). . With special thanks to Ann Topham for allowing myself and others to paint In her Park (designed by Lancelot ‘ Capability Brown’) with an event organised by Lilac Cottage Studios @ecclestoneart.

Croome: Capability Browns' first commission, a once secret wartime airbase and home to the Earls of Coventry and George Harrison (not all at the same time!)

Downton Abbey, The Movie, takes its fans to 1927. The star of Downton is, of course, Highclere Castle, Sir Charles Barry’s Anglo-Italian Jacobethan Victorian schloss set in a Capability Brown park in Hampshire. Barry designed the Houses of Parliament but considered Highclere better than anything else he had done. This castle is, as 1 visitor put it, ‘colossally grand and positively soars.’ Back in 1927, Highclere’s chatelain was the young 6th Earl of Carnarvon, Henry George Alfred Marius Victor Francis Herbert, the only son of the 5th earl (of Tutankhamen fame) and Almina Wombwell, the natural daughter of Alfred de Rothschild. Almina brought much wealth to Highclere but little affection; and Henry spent most of his life in search of it. When the 6th Earl died, aged 86 - 32 years ago next week - the brilliant father of the modern obituary, the splendid Hugh Montgomery-Massingberd, the obits editor of The Daily Telegraph, wrote of one of the most colourful members of the 20th century peerage, ‘a pillar of the Ritz Hotel, an amateur actor, relentless raconteur and most uncompromisingly direct ladies’ man.’ To some he resembled a bookmaker; Hugh described Henry as looking like a jockey. He had inherited a stud from his father - which thrived under his heir and still today under his grandson, Harry. He won the 1930 Derby for his ‘dear old fat boy’ - to us, HH The Aga Khan. In 1922 he had wed New York beauty, Catherine Wendell, and she bore him a son and a daughter. She lasted until 1936 and 3 years later he married the ravishing, libidinous dancer, singer, painter, the Russian Austrian Tilly Losch. She fled after 10 weeks but they did not divorce until 1947. Among her post-Henry lovers was Tom Mitford. He did not remarry but enjoyed the chase for decades more, treading the corridors of Highclere at night and knocking on the door of guests he fancied. One can be sure that Queen Mary and anyone of Violet’s vintage were safe. But for decades, with the priapic Henry at large, it might have been dubbed Stayclear. #downtonabbey #downtonabbeyfilm #highclerecastle#capabilitybrown #hampshire #earlofcarnarvon #ritzlondon #hughmontgomerymassingberd @downtonabbey_official

#capabilitybrown is thought to have created the original lake at Grimsthorpe #castle in 1741-2 for Peregrine Bertie, 2nd Duke of Ancaster. Brown was at the height of his career when he returned to Grimsthorpe on 11 December 1771 to work for the 3rd Duke, who inherited the estate in 1742. A detailed entry in Brown’s account book notes that he and his surveyor, Samuel Lapidge, spent almost three weeks making a full survey and that four drawings had been sent to the duke.

We stumbled upon this beauty after missing a turning! There is so much more here than you first think, an old RAF base used on WWII, the landscape (that was Capability Brown’s first commission!), the church and of course the house itself, striking amidst the vast parklands . Croome Court and its parkland has been in the Coventry family since 1592 but was only developed into what you can see today when the 6th Earl inherited . During WWII, Croome Court was requisitioned by the Ministry of Works and leased for a year to the Dutch Government. Part of the Croome estate was also requisitioned and developed into RAF Defford. There is a fantastic museum on site today showcasing memorabilia and detailing what an important part the base played in the War . In 1948 the Croome Estate Trust sold the Court & 38 acres of land to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham. It then became St Joseph's School for boys, run by nuns from 1950 until 1979 . After, the mansion was taken over by Hare Krishna movement and used as their UK headquarters until 1984. In the following years there were many attempted uses: a training centre; apartments; a restaurant and conference centre; and a hotel and golf course . In 1999 it was privately owned again until 2007 when the Croome Heritage trust purchased it and subsequently leased it to the Nation Trust (the NT did commence restoration work on the parklands back in 1996 along with some surviving RAF buildings) . So it has quite a long and varied history! Evidence of all these things lie within different parts of the estate and it’s just fantastic! Interestingly, the house is unfurnished as most of it was sold with the property prior to the school taking over. So what NT decided to do was use the rooms for local and up and coming artists to exhibit their works! . #motorhome #motorhometravel #nationaltrust #croomecourt #travel #travelblogger #motorhomefulltime #couple #adventure #lifebeyondbricks #visitengland #dethleffs #dethleffspulse #erwinhymergroup #history #mansion #estate #parklands #views #scenic #nature #capabilitybrown #worcester #vanlife #vanlifetravel #rvtravel #rvliving

DON'T FORGET This Sunday painting en plein air at Redgrave Park Suffolk. This is a rare opportunity to capture the beautiful grounds designed by the famous 18th Century Landscape Architect, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. Redgrave Park was once the site of a Palladian-Style Hall and although this original hall no longer stands, the park has lost none of its beauty or grandeur and consists of woodlands, pasture, a 45 acre fishing lake, a grade II listed Boathouse and the jewel in its crown, a grade II listed octagonal Georgian Folly - Booking via button on my profile or on our website (see profile). #artistsoninstagram #suffolk #enpleinair #oilpainting #redgrave @dissexpress @vpmagazine #landscapepainting #sunshine #capabilitybrown #pleinair #pleinairpainter #pleinairartist #pleinairpainting

The 'river' at @ntcroome is a lovely sight. ⁠ ⁠ Since acquiring @ntcroome in 1996 we have had to dredge the river of thousands of cubic metres of silt and sludge and thousands of reeds. The reeds grow quite quickly because the river isn’t very deep and it doesn’t have much of a flow on it – in fact it isn’t a river at all, it’s man-made and technically speaking it’s a reservoir.⁠ ⁠ #ntcroome #ntmidlands #nationaltrust #swans #wildlife #mansion #capabilitybrown #reservoir #parkland #reflect #historichouse #history #conservation #reeds #manmade #mellowmonday

Having driven past umpteen times on my way to see clients, finally I get to pull in and visit. . Such a lovely day at Hampton Court Palace with my Pops. The grounds are stunning but the kitchen garden was my favourite. I left with the scent of rosemary, mint and basil on my hands. . We managed to see most of the exhibitions and had pie for lunch, so I’d call that a job well done. . . . #hamptoncourtpalace #historicroyalpalaces #henryviii #annebolyen #capabilitybrown #historicpalace #formalgardens #kitchengarden #fountains #daysout #daysoutinsurrey #dayoutwithdad #dadanddaughterday

Being In Love || So we’ve been married nearly five months and I’m still feeling loved up, it’s such a wonderful feeling and I feel so fortunate! ⠀⠀ A few days ago we were at @lutonhoohotel for Afternoon Tea, which was really very relaxing and quite indulgent on a weekday, but it was a wedding gift, and we are both our own bosses so if we can’t make time for each other then what’s the point of being self-employed?! ⠀⠀ When I turned 50 i started to realise how much the little things matter, those moments of just being on a date which ends up with you lying on the grass in the sunshine just enjoying living in the moment. No rushing. Not thinking about what we’re doing next. Just living in the “now”. Probably the best type of dates don’t you think?. 🥰 oh and watching the grey squirrels run amuck... ⠀⠀ . ⟡ ⟡ ⟡ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @bluespace_rocks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⟡ ⟡ ⟡ ⠀⠀ . . . #amazingarchitecture #daytimedate #architecturelovers #bloggergirl #bloggerlife #bloggerlifestyle #beyourownboss #statelyhomes #epicgardening #cornersofmyworld #londoncalling #lovegreatbritain #visitengland #wonderlustlondon #unlimitedlondon #onlygoodvibes #positivemindset #theeverygirl #wonderful_places #travelwithme #thetravelwomen #capabilitybrown #fourweddingandafuneralfilmedhere #lutonhoohotel #bedfordshire #filmlocation #50somethingandfabulous

Cloudy but dry afternoon at Claremont #nationaltrust #capabilitybrown #ntclaremontgardens

Jemima, Marchioness de Grey inherited Wrest #bedfordshire in 1740, shortly before her marriage to Philip Yorke, later 2nd Earl of Hardwicke. In 1758 she called in #capabilitybrown to work on #gardens @EHWrestpark #bedfordshire. Jemima was keen to make changes, but didn’t want to destroy character of French-style gardens laid out in late C17th by her grandfather. #brown altered #canals and planted #trees at #wrest Park. Famous for his serpentine #lakes & winding carriage drives, he was tasked with leaving many of the straight lines at Wrest unaltered. Though critics sometimes accused him of being a vandal, here his brief was limited & he acknowledged that to do more “might unravel the Mystery of the Gardens”. As part of her scheme, Jemima added Chinese Summer House & Chinese Bridge, designed to fit with Brown’s new scheme for canals. Horace Walpole visited 4 years after Brown, remarking on “bold good taste” of Brown’s “hermitage & cold bath”. Brown did not actually design mock ruined Bath House. Walpole complained gardens were “very ugly in the old fashioned manner with high hedges & canals, at the end of the principal one of which is a frightful Temple designed by Mr. Archer”. Jemima was pleased with what Brown had done & had monument built to him by architect Edward Stevens. Column topped with acorn-shaped urn states “These gardens originally laid out by Henry Duke of Kent, were altered by Philip Earl of Hardwicke & Jemima Marchioness Grey, with the professional assistance of Lancelot Brown Esq. in the years 1758, 1759,1760.” It was originally placed near Bath House & moved to present position in 1830s. In 1767 they rewarded him with major project @Wimpole #cambridgeshire where he was given more freedom to use his skills.
