Weston Park’s Capability Brown History Walk

July 24

Weston Park’s 1,000 acres of parkland encompass a history dating back to the medieval period and an important Capability Brown commission, in addition to playing host to impressive biodiversity.  Join Head Gardener Martin Gee and our knowledgeable team to discover more of this exceptional landscape on one of our seasonal park walks.

See the park in summer leaf and discover the involvement of the famous landscape gardener Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, who worked at Weston Park from 1765 for Sir Henry and Lady Bridgeman.  Visit Brown’s unique two pleasure grounds – the Shrewsbury Walk and Temple Wood – to discover the work involved in their creation and learn about the Weston Park Foundation’s recent works to restore these important areas.  The walk will also include the landscaped area of Church Pool and the enormous walled kitchen garden which is now the focus of restoration as a place for food production.

10.30am – 12.30pm
