Brown is known as one of England's greatest landscape architects designing over 170 gardens, parks and landscapes between 1741 - 1783.

The database uses data from a variety of sources to show both definite and attributed works of Brown. The aim of the map is to encourage research into the legacy of Capability Brown in line with the 2016 festival to commemorate 300 years since his birth.

The map can be found at http://www.capabilitybrown.org/map and further information on the Capability Brown Festival 2016 can be found at http://www.capabilitybrown.org .
