Talking the Walk show

Summary: Lancelot Capability Brown laid out the grounds of this grade one listed mansion house in the heart of Warwickshire not far from Stratford Upon Avon. This Talking the Walk takes us on a stroll round the lake with John Schumann - the head groundsman who took over from his father 30 years ago - and historian John Phibbs who has made a particular study of Capability Brown's work. When you 've done the walk why not visit the house which is now an art gallery housing the Peter Moore's Foundation collection.
