The West Lawn at Compton Verney – Just a Lawn?
A photographic walk to introduce the West Lawn at Compton Verney… More to see than you’d think!
A calming walk indeed, taking in some of the classic views as intended by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. The mansion is posed in a tranquil oasis that changes throughout the season as we let the sward grow. There’s a good variety of wild flower plants to see, buttercups being visible above, although the grass remains competitive until our yearly cut and removal starts to take effect. There has been a small but successful amount of wild-flower planting, but of course we wish to improve on this. If you are able to visit Compton Verney, please make sure you take time to wander along the mown circular path, to enjoy those views both near and far. Gary
