Exploring the ‘Capability’ Brown landscape of Blenheim Palace
Built in the early 18th century, Blenheim Palace is one of Britain’s grandest stately homes and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill who was born there in 1874. Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (the landscape gardener responsible for shaping much of Britain into the romantic landscapes that we know and love today) re-designed Blenheim’s 2,000 acres of parkland between 1764 and 1774. He moved lakes, built bridges and arranged water cascades to create what is often called ‘the finest view in England’. To really appreciate the beauty of the landscape, as well as learn how to make the most of your camera, capture the moment on one of the photography courses that take place in the parkland.
