The Man Who Sculpted the Sceptred Isle

The English countryside is rightly celebrated for its beauty.  But many of the most memorable sights are far from natural–they were created by the influential landscaper Lancelot “Capability” Brown.  I was grateful to visit some of his best-known creations, thanks to Visit Britain and WestJet.  Along the way, I met the great grandson of a former Governor General and had a chat with Lord and Lady Carnarvon, the owners of Highclere Castle where Downton Abbey was filmed.  It was an amazing trip that produced two stories for Post Media.
