What did Capability Brown actually do at Harewood? Explore the estate in the company of the great man himself as he pays one last visit to find out how well his work has survived 250 years of landscape change. Mr Brown leads you on a walk down to the lake, taking in the notable cascade and passing lakeside trees that were part of his original planting scheme. Returning to the house from the walled garden he pauses at the site of Gawthorpe, the original manor house that was demolished after the building of the new mansion. The walk ends on the Terrace where Mr Brown will point out features of the great view to the south, one of his crowning achievements.
