Temple Wood is part of Weston’s extensive grounds and is one of the jewels in the crown of Capability Brown’s work, showcasing his virtuosity as a landscaper. A naturalistic and romantic paradise, over the last 15 years the Weston Park Foundation, the charity that owns and maintains the estate has gradually returned the landscape to Brown’s original vision.
Capability Brown designed the Temple Wood Pleasure Ground as a relaxing haven for the Bridgeman family. Brown was commissioned to create the wood to please all of the senses, and it still does today.
Within the woodland, visitors can enjoy a stroll, spot the wildlife that makes its home in the scenery, and see a host of historic sights.
