In celebration of the tercentenary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-1783) the Essex Garden Trust’s new publication is a gazetteer of Brown’s eighteenth century commissions that reshaped the landscape of several of Essex’s historic houses. Sites included are Audley End, Belhus, Coopersale House, Copped Hall, Hallingbury and Hatfield Forest, Navestock, Shortgrove, and Thorndon Park.
