Celebrating the tercentenary of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, the Berkshire Record Office is providing another chance to see the Berkshire Gardens Trust’s exhibition originally displayed at Caversham Park in 2016. Additional archival treasures from the BRO relating to Brown in Berkshire will also be on display.
The ‘Capability Brown in Berkshire’ exhibition is FREE and available during our opening hours (Tue & Wed 09.00-17.00; Thu 09.00-21.00, Fri 09.00-16.30) between 26th April and 30th June 2017.
The exhibition will be officially launched on 24th April at 14.00 with a talk by Ben Viljoen, co-founder of the Berkshire Gardens Trust.
The illustrated talk will look at the people that Brown worked for in Berkshire, the properties that were transformed by him and what remains of his work.
