As most of you know, I absolutely adore Capability Brown and his designs. He was certainly the largest influence on grand estates (along with the Adam brothers, of course!) in the eighteenth century. I have found a great post on Brown, and wanted to share it with you. With permission from the poster, I am Re-Bloging from the blog The Private Life of William Pitt. See link below to go directly to the webpage, and read her great post bolow!
