Lancelot 'Capability' Brown - England's first 'celebrity' gardener - made major changes to England's great estates in the 18th century. Was he a visionary or a vandal? We explore his astonishing achievements as earthmover, engineer, builder and architect, and consider his legacy in the mature sinuous 'natural' landscapes that still surround so many English royal and aristocratic houses.
