Croome Court (1754-1760)
A « Capability » Brown / Robert Adam Cooperation
The house and parkland of Croome Court was Lancelot « Capability » Brown's first landscape design, and his first major architectural project. Capability Brown started work at Croome in 1751 for George Coventry, 6th Earl of Coventry. The mansion house was yet designed by Brown and is his first flight into the realms of architecture. Robert Adam designed parts of Croome Court's interior along with James Wyatt, who designed temples and follies for the park.
