Capability Brown: Making his Design Fit for the 21st Century

The restoration of an extensive 18th century landscape under present day conditions. Croome Parke in Worcestershire was Capability Brown's first complete design and one of his favourites. It was brough back from oblivion by the National Trust between 1996 and 2006 and ten years on, recieves 150,000 visitors each year. What were the primary challenges in achieving this transformation and how successful has the restoration been? Tom Oliver, who planned and managed the project between 1997 and 2002, explains.
