VCH Shropshire: Annual Lecture by Gareth Williams

29th October 2016

2016 marks the tercentenary of the birth of Britain's greatest landscape gardener, Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.  Whilst Shropshire has no Chatsworth or Burghley, Brown enjoyed links with several influential Shropshire residents and assisted with bringing to the fore the 'capabilities' of a good few acres within the county boundary.  His legacy and his influence will be considered in this illustrated lecture where Gareth Williams (Gareth J.L. Williams MA, Curator & Head of Learning to the Weston Park Foundation) assesses his impact on Shropshire and national history.
