Ampthill Park; Capability Brown landscape with Tudor history

Project: Tree & Vegetation Clearance

Client: Ampthill Town Council     Location: Ampthill Great Park


Practicality Brown have worked with the local council at Ampthill Park in Bedfordshire, on landscaping and scrub clearance.  The park has a fascinating heritage from Henry VIII to Capability Brown, together with a diverse collection of flora and fauna.   Much of the park’s landscape was designed by Georgian landscape architect Lancelot “Capability” Brown, and remains historically significant.


We re-established the views facing north over Marston Vale originally created by Brown and there are many veteran trees from his original plantings, which provide a great habitat for today’s wildlife as well as enhancing views and accessibility.
