Event Details

This year celebrates 300 years since the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, one of England’s greatest landscape gardeners.

Join us for a leisurely walk in the park, which was created at the time Brown was as the height of his career. As well as enjoying the views and the fresh air we hope to find out more about how the land was shaped and planted to produce the ‘ideal’ English landscape. The walk is not strenuous but suitable clothing and a reasonable level of fitness is needed for this two hour visit. Places must be booked by email. Walk will go ahead in all but the worst weather.

Admission £5.00 to include refreshment

Organizer

Grimsthorpe Castle Park and GardensThe Castle is the centrepiece of the Estate. It is a large quadrangular house with a central courtyard. Each section has a different appearance, reflecting the different architectural styles that have been employed here since building began in the 13th century. Once inside you can see the collection of paintings, furniture, tapestries and objects d’art that fill the state rooms. Thrones and furnishings from the House of Lords are some of the more unusual items on view.Contact: Ray Biggs, Grimsthorpe Estate Office, Bourne, PE10 0LY.
