Moving Heaven and Earth: Celebrating 300 Years of Capability Brown with Steffie Shields

Sunday, November 13th, 2016 – 1pm

Discovery Centre, Clumber Park, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, S80 3AZ

Join the Nottinghamshire Gardens Trust and the Landscape Institute East Midlands in celebrating 300 years of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown with a talk by photographer and author Steffie Shields.

Her book Moving Heaven and Earth: Capability Brown’s Gift of Landscape, published earlier this year, explores both Brown’s artistic legacy and his pioneering work with water in the landscape. The book evaluates the rise of the English landscape garden in the climatic context of his designs and also forms a comprehensive guide for tours and visits.

The talk is free but space is limited. To book a place please email us at
