Brief history of site

Helen Langley notes ‘Capability Brown‘s work at Rycote comes within a period of considerable activity locally. Five years earlier, in 1764, he had begun work at Blenheim and from 1778 he was engaged at Nuneham Courtenay in a collaborative project with William Mason (1725-1797), the poet and garden designer’.
