National Trust ‘s Petworth House, West Sussex.
Petworth House, the 17th century mansion is set in a beautiful 700 acre deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. It has been immortalised in several of the great Turner’s paintings. The house contains the National Trust’s finest art collection; pictures, with numerous works by Turner, Van Dyck, Reynolds and Blake, fine furniture and carvings by Grinling Gibbons, ancient and Neo-classical sculpture.
Capability Brown worked at Petworth from 1751 to 1764, creating the serpentine lake, and he swept away the earlier more formal layout near the house, retaining many of the fine trees. Deer still graze up to the windows of the house just as he had intended during the design in the mid 18th century.
With careful replanting of the trees; oaks, sycamores, beeches, limes and horse-chestnuts, Capability’s vision of the tree topped hills and wooded boundaries remain today, giving the impression of a gentle transition from country estate parkland, to the more distant Sussex countryside.
