Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown was probably England’s greatest landscape designer. His life and times were celebrated in 2016 with a kaleidoscope of events centered round his Northumbrian birthplace at Kirkharle, culminated in a Capability Brown Festival weekend, over August bank holiday.

We want you to learn about and enjoy his world famous lakes and landscapes, and increasing the appreciation of his work. Guided walks can be arranged to St Wilfrid’s Church and round Kirkharle Lake.
