Confirmation that Capability Brown visited Cannon Hall

It has been 100% confirmed by the Capability Brown 300 Trust that Brown, the eighteenth century English landscape architect, visited Cannon Hall in 1778. The amazing discovery not only confirms that he went to the stunning Georgian country house, but also offered advice during his visit. However, there is no evidence that he was paid by the owner (Walter Spencer-Stanhope) or that his advice was taken.
