Landscape Gardens – Royal Mail First Day Cover

The newest collection by the Royal Mail First Day Cover is dedicated to Landscape Gardens, The Genius of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. The name Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-83) has become synonymous with the 18th century landscape garden. His trademark park formula, with its sweeping lawns and stands of ancient oak reflected in vast lakes, continues to influence our vision of a pastoral England. Each of these eight stamps commemorates different aspect of this great achievement. These eight stamps depict the landscape gardens from: Blenheim Palace, Longleat, Compton Verney, Highclere Castle, Alnwick Castle, Berrington Hall, Stowe and Croome Park.
